Archaeological Heritage Prize
Call for Nominations
European Association of Archaeologists instituted the European Archaeological
Heritage Prize in 1999. An independent committee awards the prize annually

or international) officer or body for an outstanding contribution
to the protection and presentation of the European archaeological heritage.
In principle, this can be any contribution that is outstanding and of European
scope or importance, it does not have to be a scientific contribution.
