Insights Seminar

Nominations for the 2016 British Archaeological Awards opened on Monday 14 September 2015 at a British Archaeological Awards seminar and reception at the Society of Antiquaries of London.

Previous Award winners shared insights about their archaeology project, book or public presentation with the archaeology community to spread best practice and highlight the benefits of celebrating the best of British archaeology.

Nominations were invited for the 2016 Awards, to be held on 11 July 2016 at the British Museum, in the following categories:

  • Best Archaeological Project
  • Best Community Engagement Archaeology Project
  • Best Archaeological Book
  • Best Public Presentation of Archaeology
  • Best Archaeological Innovation

BAA trustees also have the discretionary option of awarding an Outstanding Achievement Award which was awarded in 2012 to Mick Aston and in 2014 to the Council for British Archaeology’s first Secretary, Beatrice de Cardi.

See the judging criteria for each Award and download a nomination form for the 2016 Awards on our Contact us page.

The closing date for entries is 29 February 2016.
