A York graduate has been awarded awarded the Society for Medieval Archaeology's John Hurst Prize, given annually to the undergraduate dissertation that makes the most original contribution to medieval archaeology. Catherine Thomas was awarded the prize at the Society's AGM, held at the British Museum on the 24th November.
Cathy recently graduated from the Department of Archaeology with a first-class degree, and her dissertation, A life of plenty: investigating provisioning of an early medieval monastic site through stable isotope analysis' was selected from a field that contained a large number of exceptionally high quality submissions.
This is a fantastic achievement and the department would like to extend its warm congratulations to Cathy.
