The Ness of Brodgar has been selected for a 2019 Shanghai Archaeology Forum Field Discovery Award.
Having heard we had been nominated a few weeks ago, we have just learnt that we have won an award.
For this year’s forum, a total of 141 nominations from around the world were received from the advisory members from every corner of the globe.
After receiving sufficient evaluations from 61 Shanghai Archaeology Forum corresponding members, 40 projects were shortlisted. A total of 34 invited members from 18 different countries joined the selection committee to cast votes in the selection of 20 finalists, ten for each category (Field Discovery and Research Awards).
We all feel very honoured and site director Nick Card has received a fully funded invitation to the Forum in Shanghai, in December, to deliver a presentation and accept the award.
Congratulations to the whole Ness team, you all deserve it!
