The winners of the 11th annual Current Archaeology Awards were announced on Friday 8 March, as part of Current Archaeology Live! 2019. The awards celebrate the projects and publications that made the pages of the magazine over the past 12 months, and the people judged to have made outstanding contributions to archaeology.

These awards are voted for entirely by the public – there are no panels of judges.
