26th February 2018:

We are thrilled that our publication, Lost Landscapes of Palaeolithic Britain, has won the award for 'Book of the Year' in the Current Archaeology Awards 2018

The volume, written by leading Palaeolithic specialists Mark White, Martin Bates, Matthew Pope, Danielle Schreve, Beccy Scott and Andrew Shaw, and coordinated by Elizabeth Stafford at OA South, explores the remarkable results from research projects funded by the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund (administered by Historic England) that have transformed our understanding of the Palaeolithic Britain.

The awards ceremony was held on 23rd February at Current Archaeology Live! 2018 at Senate House, University of London. Accepting the award on behalf of the team from archaeologist and presenter Julian Richards, Mark White said, 'I am very surprised – no one votes for the Palaeolithic! Thank you very much.'

The book can be purchased in hardback format from Oxbow Books, but is also available to download free from Oxford Archaeology’s library.
