The International Society of Antiquaries
Who we are
A learned and multidisciplinary society established in 2018, we are committed to:
The Council, comprised of noted experts in their respective fields, convenes every so often to present exhibitions that both remove the veils from long-buried cultures and celebrate their mystery by:
The owl, the standing stones, the scale, the flame, and the ouroboros together signify a deep, even mystical, understanding of the archaeological record and humanity's link to the very underpinnings of its civil culture. Our sigil honors the original mystery schools as well as those antiquaries of centuries past who, by pioneering the scholarly study of material culture, eventually paved the way for archaeological fieldwork, documentation, and interpretation as they are practiced today.
