The British Archaeological Awards are Britain's most prestigious independent awards, celebrating and showcasing the best in archaeology across the UK.

Established in 1976, they now encompass five Awards and two discretionary Awards and are a central event in the archaeological calendar.

The 2016 winners were announced at a ceremony on 11 July at the British Museum, presented by Julian Richards and Bettany Hughes.

Nominations are now open for the 2018 Awards.

The Awards' mission is to promote archaeology to practitioners and the wider public by celebrating and sharing excellence, innovation and engagement in archaeology.
