Archaeologists, buildings historians and others concerned with understanding and preserving our heritage spend much of their time and energy on research, which is published in a flood of monographs and articles in specialist journals. Much of this fascinating work remains unknown to the wider public, whose understanding and support are crucial to the preservation of our heritage.
The purpose of the awards is to encourage researchers to present their research on British and Irish archaeology, historic buildings, and heritage conservation, to the wider public. Short-listed entrants present their research to a public audience as part of a day of presentations; they are judged by the audience and by a panel of judges.
Sponsored by the Royal Archaeological Institute, English Heritage, Cadw, Historic Scotland, the Environment and Heritage Service (an agency within DOE(NI), and the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government (Republic of Ireland).
