Diamond Jubilee celebrations
In honour of our Patron, for the year of Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee, we are hosting reports from local societies on our website, marking their proudest archaeological or historical achievements of the past 60 years. Her Majesty has been informed of this new web page in our congratulatory letter to her. In response, we have received a letter of thanks from Her Majesty.
The following submissions have been judged, and the winner for the best report is Cornwall Archaeological Society. Professor David Hinton presented the award to Hilary Orange from Cornwall Archaeological Society at Current Archaeology’s 2013 LIVE! Conference.
A big thank you to all of the societies who participated. Entries will be kept online until early June 2013, the anniversary of HM The Queen’s Coronation.
