Andante Travels Archaeological Award 2010

December 29, 2009

Applications are invited for the annual award of £2000 for an archaeological project of any professional nature anywhere in the world.

Andante Travels is a company owned and run by people who have trained and worked in archaeology, and the mission of our company is to provide programmes of the highest academic integrity which are also relaxed and enjoyable holidays.  We want everyone to discover what an exciting interest archaeology can be, whether pursued half way round the world, or in one’s own back garden.

The purpose of this award is to give something back from our own archaeologically-based business, and to heighten awareness of individual projects of very different natures.  We have about 17,000 people on our database and a well-visited website, so there is the potential to give exposure to all projects who apply.  Some of our guests have given altruistic help to needy projects in the past.

Past Winners have been:
Volubilis, Morocco – £2000 towards website development and signage on site
Kerkenes Dag, Turkey – £2000 towards geophysical survey equipment
Stonehenge Riverside Project – £2000 towards archaeological equipment
Via Consolare Project in Pompeii – £2000 towards equipment for excavation

Smaller donations have been made to:
Nola Bronze Age site in Italy (victim of an ealier eruption of Vesuvius, with similar effects in terms of conservation)
Roman Glass-making project near Salisbury

Applications should be on one side of A4 only, sent as an attachment to: by 31st January 2010.

• Winners will be notified by 5th February 2010.
• The Andante award will be presented at Current Archaeology’s Annual Conference  to be held at the British Museum on 27th/28th February 2010.
• Applicants should be happy for details of their project to be promoted on the Andante website.
