The Council for British Archaeology, in association with the Marsh
Christian Trust, are pleased to announce the short list for the Marsh
Archaeology Award, which recognises and promotes high quality
archaeological work being carried out by the community archaeology
sector.

The four short-listed entries cover a broad geographical spread within
the UK, and also demonstrate an impressive methodological breadth. The
short-list is as follows:

* The Badsey Society Enclosure Map Project (www.badsey.net/enclosure),
which looked at the development of the parishes of Badsey and Aldington,
Worcestershire since 1807, starting with the early 19th century
enclosure maps.

* Mellor Archaeological Trust's work on the multi-period site around
Mellor Church (www.mellorarchaeology.org.uk) which led them on to
research, investigate and record the history of the whole parish of
Mellor, which includes Ludworth and Marple Bridge, near Stockport in
Greater Manchester.

* The North of Scotland Archaeological Society's programme of survey and
excavation on the Glen Feshie Estate (www.nosas.co.uk) in the Scottish
Highlands.

* Royton Lives Through The Ages, a sub-group of the Royton Local History
Society, for their work on the history of Royton Hall, Manchester which
included excavation with extensive public interpretation and display, as
well as work with local schools (long web address: google: 'Royton Lives
Through the Ages').

Such was the quality of the field, in this the inaugural year of the
Marsh Archaeology Award, that a further seven entries were highly
commended, including the Westbury Society in Somerset, the Chess Valley
Archaeological & Historical Society in Buckinghamshire, the Community
Landscape & Archaeology Survey Project in Northamptonshire, the
Ingleborough Archaeology Group in North Yorkshire, the Washingborough
Archaeology Group in Lincolnshire, the Solihull Archaeological Group in
Warwickhire, and finally the Unst Archaeology Group working at Sandwick
in Shetland.

Dr Mike Heyworth MBE, Director of the CBA, explained that the purpose of
the award is 'to encourage local communities to research the past around
them, and to convey a passion for our cultural heritage to future
generations. Community archaeology groups are often home-grown, and are
very effective in drawing in new people with an interest in their local
heritage. Getting involved in such research gives a real boost both to
the communities themselves and to the body of archaeological knowledge
available.'

The Marsh Archaeology Award forms part of a broader programme of support
with which the CBA hopes to encourage community archaeology groups
across the UK. The hub for this activity is the award-winning Community
Archaeology Forum (www.britarch.ac.uk/caf), which gives advice to local
groups looking to start up and run projects in their area.
 
Brian Marsh OBE, chairman of the Marsh Christian Trust, has the
difficult job of deciding on the inaugural winner of the award, to be
announced in the forthcoming issue of British Archaeology magazine. The
prize-giving ceremony will take place at the Discover Archaeology Live
event at Olympia, London on May 2nd (for further information on this
event, visit www.discoverarchaeologylive.com).
