Pitt Rivers Award 2002

The Society was a finalist in the 2002 British Archaeological Awards for the Pitt Rivers Prize. The Society was Highly Commended by the judges, and received a cheque for £1,250, a commemorative plate and a certificate. This was the first time the Society had entered the competition, and it was a great achievement to be one of the four finalists. The top award went to the Fast Castle Project; the Graham Webster Laurels (for education in an archaeological project) went to the Sedgeford Project; and the Botel Castle Project and our own Upper Row Project were highly commended.
