Must Farm excavation and Thames Discovery Programme win British Archaeological Awards

An unprecedented landscape-wide investigation into prehistoric life, the longest open air archaeological site in London, a scheme to help injured soldiers and, of course, Channel 4’s Time Team are among the winners in this year’s British Archaeological Awards.

The bi-annual Awards, which took place yesterday at the British Museum revealed Cambridge Archaeology Unit’s remarkable 2011 excavation of Deep Fenland around Must Farm as winner in the Best Archaeology Project and Best Archaeological Discovery categories.

The Cambridge team, which worked with Hanson UK on the extraordinary mass excavation project at a clay brick extraction site at Whittlesey, has had top Bronze expert and TV archaeologist Dr Francis Pryor describing the venture “as a rare glimpse of a vanished time”.
