Due to the pandemic, a number of the British Archaeological Association’s meetings and lectures have had to be cancelled. However, fear not, because the BAA have recorded their lectures and provided a fantastic resource sharing community. Check out what the BAA have digitally available.
Lectures in Lockdown
As a result of the spread of the coronavirus, the Society of Antiquaries has closed and the final two lectures of the BAA’s 2019-20 season have been delivered virtually and posted to YouTube.

BAA Sharing Resources
Many BAA members are currently conducting research under testing conditions, with no access to libraries or other resources. Yet many BAA members have substantial libraries and digital archives of their own, which collectively represent a significant and largely untapped resource.
This new scheme offers BAA members a way of working together in these difficult times: anyone who needs materials or might be able to offer them should open this BAA resources page, where there are further details.
