The Roman Society’s dissertation prize will be awarded next in 2024. It will be awarded to the author of the best undergraduate dissertation in the field of Roman archaeology in the two years prior to the Society’s biennial Roman Archaeology Conference. The successful applicant will receive £250, a year’s subscription to Britannia and free admittance to the conference where the award is made.
Entries are invited from students at British universities, and should be submitted through and with the support of the relevant university department. Only one entry per department can be considered. The award will be judged by the Society’s Archaeology Committee.
The prize will be awarded at the Roman Archaeology Conference in London in April 2024. Applicants should ensure a hard copy of their dissertation plus a letter of recommendation from the university reaches the Roman Society’s Secretary by 1 November 2023 (extended to 15 November).
