Our Young Archaeologist of the Year is ....... Roisin Hogarth
On Friday evening we celebrated the achievements of three outstanding young people, who have made an exceptional contribution to archaeology.
We are really pleased to announce that Roisin Hogarth, member of Flodden YAC from the Scottish Borders, was named this year’s Young Archaeologist of the Year. Well done Roisin!
Roisin was nominated by her Branch Leader, Jane Miller. She has been a member of the Flodden YAC for many years and has a particular enthusiasm for archaeological fieldwork and through the YAC has participated in many community excavations, improving her own archaeological skills and helping other less experienced members to develop theirs.

Roisin was presented with her award by a Trustee of the Marsh Christian Trust, the sponsors of the Marsh Archaeology Awards, and Richard Osgood from Operation Nightingale and Community Archaeologist of the Year. The award ceremony took place in London this year as part of the CBA’s annual public ‘Archaeology Day’. Prior to the awards ceremony we all had the opportunity to visit the London Mithraeum for a tour of the site.
Roisin was one of the three shortlisted nominees for the Young Archaeologist of the Year 2019. James Watts and Anna Priest were both Highly Commended for their work. Congratulations to all three young people!
