And the winner is... Marsh Archaeology Award victor revealed
Dartmoor Cairn Survey and Repair Project were crowned the winners of the 2011 Marsh Archaeology Award. This year the Award recognised and celebrated groups or individuals from the voluntary sector who were responsible over the last two years for looking after and promoting access to the historic environment within the UK.
The award was presented in London on Monday at the CBA’s Winter General Meeting. The two runner up groups, Northwick Manor Community Heritage Project from Worcestershire and the Gloucester City Council Heritage Service & Clutch Clinic Community Group partnership, also received their certificates of commendation, after all three groups gave short presentations about their work. The award was presented by Brian Marsh of the Marsh Christian Trust.
CBA Director Dr Mike Heyworth, MBE, said:
Everybody was amazed by the quality and the diversity of the three finalists - they were all fantastic and deserved to be shortlisted. It’s extremely encouraging to heritage stewardship being used to engage such a wide variety of audiences with their local environment. I’m delighted for the team of volunteers involved with Dartmoor Cairn Survey and Repair Project; they are very worthy winners.
