The Sorrell archive continues to be housed in and cared for by the Society of Antiquaries of London.  Its guidance around and commitment to both the archive and this project have proven invaluable.  More information about the Society’s collections, projects, and rich intellectual history can be found on its website:

The preliminary phase of our research has been made possible by funding from the British Academy in the form of a small research grant.  This award has enabled the initial sorting and cataloguing of the archive, as well as providing an opportunity to begin to articulate a larger research framework focused on Sorrell’s practice.
