OAFund Winner

October 2017: Meet the Open Access Archaeology Award Winner!

To mark the 2017 Open Access week, we thought it would be a good time to introduce the winner of our first Open Access Archaeology fund award (decided on after much deliberation and consideration by the panel of 3 independent judges). Chris Whittaker carried out a survey at Breedon on the Hill, a multi-period hilltop site, as part of his undergraduate dissertation at Newcastle University. After graduating he worked outside archaeology in the technology sector. However conscious that his data was potentially at risk,
he applied to the fund to help preserve the data and publish his findings.
