Archaeology Awards

Category: Archaeology Awards

Every year, the Current Archaeology Awards celebrate the projects and publications that have made the pages of Current Archaeology over the 12 months, and the people judged to have made outstanding contributions to archaeology.

We will be announcing the nominees for the awards in Current Archaeology, and we will list the nominees here on the Current Archaeology website, where you will be able to cast your votes.

These awards are voted for entirely the public – there are no panels of judges – so we encourage you to get involved and choose the projects, publications, and people who you would like to win.

The main prizes are awarded in the following four categories: Book of the Year; Research Project of the Year; Rescue Dig of the Year; and Archaeologist of the Year.
