Marsh Awards for Community Archaeology 2020 winners announced

Marsh Awards for Community Archaeology 2020

The winners of the 2020 Marsh Awards for Community Archaeology (in association with the Marsh Christian Trust) were announced at our online AGM on the 4th of February, 2021. 

The challenges of the pandemic were reflected in a special one-off awards this year that recognised the way that projects have continued to engage their communities in archaeology through the difficulties of the past year. There were awards in two categories: best projects with paid support, and best volunteer-led projects. 

All these projects are deserving of recognition. It was difficult to whittle them down to a shorlist of six, and even harder to decide on the winners. 

Here is the shortlist and the winners in full. Congratulations are due to all. 

You can download a pdf brochure with details of all the shortlisted projects below.
