Despite the pandemic this year, there has been a lot of activity in the archaeological world and now it’s time to decide who gets your vote in this year’s Current Archaeology Awards, which celebrate both the projects and publications that have made the pages of Current Archaeology magazine over the last 12 months, and the people judged to have made outstanding contributions to archaeology.


As always, there are four categories to vote in, and winners are decided purely on the number of public votes received. Click the following links to see the nominees in each category:

We’ve cast our vote, and now it’s time to cast yours, so peruse the nominees and make your choice.

Voting closes on 8 February 2021, and the winners will be announced at the special awards ceremony on 26 February at Current Archaeology Live! 2021. Although ongoing Covid restrictions mean that the conference will in all likelihood not be following the usual format this year, options are currently being explored by the conference team for this year’s event – for the latest details, see the conference web page.
