"Making History" explores the work and achievement of the Fellowship of the Society of Antiquaries, London, from its foundation in the early eighteenth century to the present day. It features milestones in the discovery, recording, interpretation and communication of Britain's past through its material footprint. Contrasting beliefs about the past before the Society was founded, it reveals how new discoveries and technologies have over the past three hundred years transformed our understanding of our island history. This lavishly illustrated book will showcase the unique treasures of Britain's oldest learned society concerned with the study of the past. It will include antiquities of international importance, detailed records of lost buildings and objects, paintings of ancient sites and landscapes by Constable, Girtin, Turner, Blake and other great artists commissioned by the Society and its Fellows, royal portraits from Henry VI to Mary Tudor and rare historical manuscripts.
