Vote! Current Archaeology Awards
Finally, something we can vote for where whoever wins it’ll be a good thing and the results won’t change the world as we know it, worryingly this is now my criteria for an election!
HARN member, Chris Evans, has reminded me that the Mucking Prehistory Volume Lives in Land has been nominated in Current Archaeology’s ‘Research Project of the Year’ awards-category. Given how rare it is for a volume appearing in a Historiography & Fieldwork Series to get noticed and given how rare it is for a history of archaeology book to be nominated this is a good opportunity for HARN members to weigh in with their votes. You can read about the nominations here, and the closing date for voting is the 6th of February with the winners to be announced on the 24th of February.
As well as Research Project of the Year there are other categories you can vote for including ‘Archaeologist of the Year’ (do please consider the wonderful Mark Knight in that category) and ‘Rescue Project of the Year’ (ahem, Must Farm) – you can see all the categories and entries here.
So do go and vote, whoever wins it will be wonderful and if Mucking wins it’s a win for historiography.
