I initially thought it best to leave this link here without comment. However, if anyone needs a little nudge just to remind people that Blick Mead has recently been discussed on this forum and is a very worthy candidate for 'Research Project of the Year'.

Whilst recognising the merit of all three nominees, may I respectfully suggest Jim Leary as 'Archaeologist of the Year'.
To quote from the above link:
Jim directs the Archaeology Field School in the Department of Archaeology at the University of Reading. He joined the University in 2013 after more than 15 years of professional experience – with English Heritage, and before that with a commercial archaeological unit. In 2007/8 he directed fieldwork at the huge Neolithic mound of Silbury Hill in the Avebury & Stonehenge World Heritage Site, which involved excavating a tunnel into its centre. Since 2010 he has been investigating the Vale of Pewsey in Wiltshire, particularly the Neolithic ceremonial arena of Marden henge, as well as Wilsford henge and Cat’s Brain Long Barrow. He also directs the Leverhulme Trust-funded Round Mounds Project; an investigation of large round mounds across England. In 2015 Jim published The Remembered Land; a book looking at the way people experienced and responded to sea-level rise in the past, and is currently writing a book on the way people walked and moved around the landscape in the past. ...

Thank you
