Marie Louise Stig Sørensen awarded the 16th European Archaeology Heritage Prize (2014)

 

Marie Louise Stig Sørensen, a reader in the Department of Archaeology and Anthropolgy, was awarded the 16th European Archaeology Heritage Prize at the European Association of Archaeologists Annual Meeting in Istanbul.

The prize is awarded to an individual, institution, or local or regional government for an outstanding contribution to the protection and presentation of European archaeological heritage.

Sørensen's 'ground breaking achievements' include introducing one of the first masters courses in archaeological heritage at the University of Cambridge and helping to raise academic awareness of the field internationally.  She also introduced the Annual Heritage Seminar, which is now an established international institution running in its 15th year.  She has undertaken innovative research, directing a major EU-financed project on heritage and the reconstruction of identities after conflict (CRIC).
