The winners of the 16th annual Current Archaeology Awards were announced on Saturday 24 February, as part of Current Archaeology Live! 2024.
The awards celebrate the projects and publications that made the pages of the magazine over the past 12 months, and the people judged to have made outstanding contributions to archaeology.
These awards are voted for entirely by the public – there are no panels of judges – so we encouraged you to get involved and choose the projects, publications, and people you wanted to win.
The winners are:
Archaeologist of the Year 2024:
Research Project of the Year 2024:
The Ness of Brodgar: marking 20 years of Neolithic discoveries
