Young Archaeologist of the Year 2017: The shortlist
The Young Archaeologist of the Year Award is one of the Marsh Archaeology Awards organised by the Council for British Archaeology (which YAC is part of), supported by the Marsh Christian Trust.
Young Archaeologist of the Year Award
The Young Archaeologist of the Year Award is presented to a young person (or group of young people) aged 17 or under, who loves archaeology. To be our Award winner, we want someone who has developed their own archaeological knowledge and skills, and who has shared their love of archaeology and the past with other people too.
There are four shortlisted entries for the 2017 Young Archaeologist of the Year Award, featuring seven superb young archaeologists.
And the shortlisted young archaeologists are...
Cassie (17) has been nominated for her work at Ribchester Roman Villa in Lancashire, where she has been volunteering for the last three years.
"Cassie shares her joy and love for archaeology with everybody.”
Roisin (12) is the youngest of this year's shortlisted nominees. She's an experienced archaeologist already, having spent more than 35 days working on excavations across the UK.
"Rosie shows that archaeology truly is for everyone."
Anna (15) is a long-standing member of Bexley YAC, and is planning to stay on at the club as a Young Leader.
"Anna is very patient and works really well with our younger YAC members."
Emma, Josh and Megan have been involved in the Home Front Legacy 1914-18 project. They have written and presented a series of videos encouraging other young people to get involved in the project.
Good luck to all of the shortlisted nominees!
The Young Archaeologist of the Year Award will be presented along with the other Marsh Archaeology Awards at a ceremony in London in November.
