The G. E. Rickman Memorial Fund
Professor Geoffrey E. Rickman has been called “the father of ancient history,” and his distinguished career truly began whilst living at The British School in Rome as a Fellow in 1957. He remained devoted to the School, returning frequently as a scholar, and was elected Chairman of the BSR Council from 1997 to 2002, during which time he played an invaluable role in securing the vision of the School’s future.
This fund was established in 2010 to honour this extraordinary man, and supports scholars and lectures in Professor Rickman’s own field of the archaeology and history of the Roman Mediterranean.
