Every year the Current Archaeology Awards celebrate the projects and publications that have made the pages of CA over the last 12 months, and the people judged to have made outstanding contributions to archaeology.
Voting for the 9th annual Current Archaeology Awards has now closed. These awards are voted for entirely by the public – there are no panels of judges. You can read about the nominees in each category by clicking on the links below:
The winners will be announced on Friday 24 February at the Current Archaeology Live! 2017 conference, and entrance to the awards ceremony and evening drinks reception is included as part of your conference ticket.

We will be updating this page with more information as it is announced. In the meantime, watch the video below for a flavour of what to expect from these celebrated CA Live! events!
What to expect
Neil Faulkner, Contributing Editor of Current Archaeology and Editor of Military History Monthly, guides us through a snapshot of the Current Archaeology Live! 2015 conference, which was held in February at Senate House, London.
Our previous conferences have been great successes – below are a few of your comments. We look forward to seeing you all again at this coming one!
Exceeded expectations. I was expecting a lot and got more – it’s good to have access to good speakers and key personnel in the projects.
I flew all the way from Dubai for the conference and thoroughly enjoyed every presentation. It was an excellent weekend in a superb building with great biscuits.
I’ve been to every conference: I always expect to enjoy it, and I always do.
The event exceeded our expectation. We have an amateur interest in archaeology, mainly through television, and did have a concern that the event might be overly academic. This was not borne out, and we thought that all the speakers delivered interesting sets with Time Team presentation skills – and I mean that in a good way!
The organisers are to be congratulated for putting on a stimulating and wide-ranging programme.
It entirely lived up to my expectations. The venue was excellent; a magnificent art deco building. The awards ceremony and drinks reception (with nice pastries, rather than just crisps) – and the rock group – was an enjoyable way to close the first day.
It was my first attendance and I was highly impressed. The organisation was very smooth and professional, the content of excellent quality and superbly presented, the venue accessible and comfortable.
Excellent speakers and presentations. Also met up with old friends and made new ones – a friendly atmosphere.
Event was excellent value for money!
It was very interesting to hear current updated views from the contributors, all people qualified in their own disciplines. The event was well organised and gives one the opportunity to attend a centre where like-minded people can congregate and listen to current debate on topics.
Well-organised, well-run, and a superb range of speakers.
I have been to every conference since they began, and the range and variety of topics has been superb I can offer no improvements.
