Roman Archaeology Fieldwork Awards

Open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students of Classics and Archaeology to support fieldwork relating to Roman or late antique archaeology.

Thanks to the generosity of the Roman Society, and using funds generated by the Roman Archaeology Conference and Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference held at Edinburgh in 2018, the School of History, Classics and Archaeology is pleased to invite applications for the Roman Archaeology Fieldwork Awards. The Awards are open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students of Classics and Archaeology within the School and are intended to support individuals carrying out fieldwork relating to Roman or late antique archaeology, either for their own research or as part of an excavation or survey project. The awards can be used to cover travel or accommodation costs or field-school fees. A maximum of five awards of up to £500 each will be made each year.

The selection process will be led by Professor Jim Crow and Dr Ben Russell. Applicants should e-mail the completed application form to ben.russell@ed.ac.uk. The deadline for applications is the 1st March. Successful applicants should write a report (500 words) on how the funds were used. Further queries can be addressed to Dr Russell.
