The Society (based at Burlington House in London) is a registered charity and the oldest learned society in Britain concerned with the material remains of the past. The Society consists of 3,000 Fellows who are scholars and practitioners working across the cultural heritage sector. The Society also owns and manages a historic property in Oxfordshire, Kelmscott Manor, which was the former Cotswolds retreat of William Morris and the final home of his daughter, May Morris.
