You can help major Bradford archaeology projects scoop national awards


Researchers at Bradford have been nominated for two national awards by Current Archaeology – and your vote can help them secure the top prizes.

The collaborative excavation at Durrington Walls, led by Bradford and UCL, has been nominated for the 2016 Research Project of the Year.

The was also included in a group of fantastic projects representing the most important archaeological innovations of the last 50 years.

Current Archaeology said that 2016 had been another outstanding year for archaeological research, and that the Durrington project was one of the most exciting projects to have featured in Current Archaeology over the last 12 months.

The 9th annual Current Archaeology (CA) Awards will celebrate the projects and publications that made the pages of CA in 2016, 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 – so we encourage you to get involved and choose Durrington Walls and Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes.

Voting closes on 6 February 2017, and the winners will be announced at the special awards ceremony in London on 24 February at Current Archaeology Live! 2017.
