Encyclopedia > Antiquary

An antiquarian is one concerned with antiquities or things of the past. More narrowly, the term is often used for those who studied (usually local) history with special attention to the physical traces of the past. Antiquarianism is usually considered to have emerged in the sixteenth century; by the nineteenth century it had become transformed into the academic discipline of archaeology.
