John Hurst Award

Posted On: September 24th, 2010

The Society for Medieval Archaeology awards the first John Hurst Award to the undergraduate dissertation that makes the most original contribution to medieval archaeology (from AD400 to 1500). Download an interview with one of the Society for Medieval Archaeology’s founding members from the Society of Antiquaries of London website.

The interview with John Hurst is the first in what will be a series of interviews that can be listened to online or downloaded and listened to on a computer or MP3 player, such as an iPod. He will be talking about his childhood interest in archaeology, his Cambridge education, his first excavations and his growing interest in deserted medieval villages at a time when historians were denying that they even existed.
