Royal Academy of Archaeology of Belgium

The Royal Academy of Archaeology of Belgium (French: Académie Royale d'Archéologie de Belgique, Dutch: Koninklijke Academie voor Oudheidkunde van België), founded in 1842, is a learned society in Belgium that works to promote research and education in the fields of archaeology and art history.
