Antiquity awards two prizes annually for outstanding work in the field of archaeology.
The Antiquity Prize was created in 1994 by Editor Christopher Chippindale and the Antiquity Editorial Board in recognition of the fact that research funding was becoming increasingly competitive, the time to write difficult to find, and really good writing is ‘as rare and precious as ever’. They created the prize to honour and support the author(s) of the best contribution to each volume of Antiquity.
Ben Cullen (1964 – 1995) was a promising young archaeologist when he died unexpectedly, and the Ben Cullen Antiquity prize was founded by Ian Gollop in his honour in 1996. His work was published posthumously by Steele et al. (2000) Contagious Ideas: on Evolution, Culture, Archaeology and the Cultural Virus Theory. Selected Writings of Ben Cullen.
These articles are available to read for free.
