The British Archaeological Awards are a showcase for the best in UK archaeology and a central event in the archaeological calendar. Established in 1976, they now encompass five Awards and two discretionary awards, covering every aspect of UK archaeology.
The purpose of the Awards is to advance public education in the study and practice of archaeology in all its aspects in the United Kingdom, and in particular by the granting of awards for excellence and/or initiative.
The Awards are committed to recognising significant contributions to knowledge and the importance of research, professional standards and excellence, involvement of local communities in the study of archaeology, effective dissemination and presentation of archaeological knowledge, and innovation and originality of approach.
The BAA 2018 Short List has been released and the winners were announced at a ceremony in October 2018.
We are not currently accepting nominations for 2020 but notification when the awards will open for nominations will be posted on this website.
