Prehistoric Society Undergraduate Dissertation Prize
The Prehistoric Society invites submissions for the 2020 undergraduate dissertation prize. The award celebrates the dissertation that has made the greatest contribution to the study of prehistory in any part of the world. The Prize is open to students from any University in Britain and Ireland, nominated and submitted by their host department (please note: only one nomination is permitted per university).
Each Department is thus invited to submit one dissertation by a candidate who completes her or his degree during the 2019/20 academic year. The judges will assess entries on the basis of the quality of work, the originality of the approach and the degree to which the research advances our understanding of prehistory.
The winner will receive three years’ free membership of the Society, the choice of one of the Society’s in-print monographs and £100. Three runners-up will be awarded a current copy of the Proceedings of the Prehistoric Society. An abridged version of the successful dissertation will be considered for publication in the Proceedings. The Prize will be presented prior to the Sara Champion lecture (which may be held virtually this year): date and details to be announced shortly.
