The Society of Antiquaries London elected Susan E. Alcock as a Fellow, through a ballot election held on November 1, 2007. Alcock was among 25 new Fellows elected, and one of only two Americans chosen.

The Society's website specifies that "to be elected persons shall be 'excelling in the knowledge of the antiquities and history of this and other nations' and be 'desirous to promote the honour, business and emoluments of the Society'." The Society’s 2,500 Fellows include many distinguished archaeologists and art and architectural historians holding positions of responsibility across the cultural heritage.

Founded in 1751, the Society’s principal objectives are to foster public understanding of that heritage, to support research and communicate the results and to engage in the formulation of public policy on the care of our historic environment and cultural property.
