Individual Members (£50) may purchase PBSR for:

BSR Annual Fund

Your gift funds a critical pool of flexible, readily-available support that can be put to use wherever it is needed most urgently – with immediate benefit to our residents, programmes, and staff.

All donors giving £50 or more are automatically Members of the BSR.

Please support the Annual Fund at whatever level is most appropriate for you, knowing that the BSR values every gift and every donor.

The G.E. Rickman Memorial Fund

Professor Geoffrey E. Rickman (1932-2010) began his distinguished career as a Fellow in 1957. He returned frequently as a scholar, and served as Chairman of Council from 1997 to 2000.

Geoffrey is remembered with great affection by generations of BSR award-holders as a deeply generous, hugely witty and unfailingly encouraging companion.

We established the G.E. Rickman Memorial Fund to honour our extraordinary friend and continue his commitment to early career scholars and scholarship particularly in his field of the archaeology and history of the Roman Mediterranean.

To add to this fund, please specify ‘Rickman Fund’ in the comments of your donation form.
