The Association for Industrial Archaeology (AIA), the national organisation for people who share an interest in Britain’s industrial past, is seeking entries for its ‘Archaeological Report Award’. This award, of £800, will be given for the report which demonstrates the highest standards of fieldwork, recording and contextual research for industrial archaeological projects in that year. This year there will be two awards given out, one for funded/commercial work and the other for volunteer work.
In addition, the AIA is also seeking entries for the Peter Neaverson Award for Digital Initiative and Innovation, which recognises the impact that developing digital technologies are having in the interpretation, dissemination and conservation of our industrial heritage and archaeology. This award, of £500, will be given to the creators of the work (eg animation, online resource, technical survey- such as LiDAR, GIS or 3D laser scanning)which makes the most effective use of digital technologies in industrial archaeology/heritage in that year. Deadline for entries for both awards is the 1st of March 2014.
