The British Archaeological Association invites submissions for the Reginald Taylor & Lord Fletcher Essay Prize, awarded biennially for the best unpublished essay submitted on aspects of the art, architecture or archaeology of Europe or the Mediterranean from the Roman era to the Middle Ages, or their study.
The prize consists of a bronze medal and a cheque for £500, and prize-winning essays are commonly published in the Journal of the British Archaeological Association (subject to approval via peer review). The essay should represent original and rigorous research and should normally be no longer than 8,000 words, not including footnotes. Through this prize the BAA seeks to recognize developing researchers (of any age), so those who already have a substantial publication record are ineligible to apply.
Essays (including illustrations) should be submitted as a single PDF file, and sent as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Further details are available at https://thebaa.org/scholarships-awards/reginald-taylor-lord-fletcher-essay-prize/
The deadline to submit essays is midnight on 1 December 2021.
