This chapter examines the role played by learned societies in advancing archaeological research in nineteenth-century France. It begins by contextualising provincial antiquarian societies that were established in France during the course of the nineteenth century before turning to the rules and regulations meant to put legal and political restrictions on the activities of antiquarian enterprises, along with their impact on archaeology's standing as an amateur profession in the country. It then considers the mechanics of learned societies before concluding with a discussion of the archaeological societies' financial considerations and budgets.

Keywords:   learned societies, archaeological research, France, antiquarian societies, rules and regulations, archaeology, archaeological societies, budgets
