The Medal, awarded for the first time in 1957, is for work relating to classical studies and archaeology but it has rarely been awarded to an archaeologist. David served as Chief Inspector of Ancient Monuments for Scotland from 1989 to 2005 and led the team which successfully nominated the Antonine Wall as a World Heritage Site in 2008. He has served as Chairman of the International Congress of Roman Frontier Studies and is currently in the process of completing the publication of a series of 20 multi-language books on the frontiers of the Roman Empire.

The school sends its warmest congratulations to David on his award.
