Heritage Scholars, Professionals and Volunteers on the New Year Honours List 2010

December 31, 2009

I thought it would be interesting to see how historians, archaeologists and museum professionals fare on the New Year Honours List for next year. This may not be a complete listing, as for some of the community services awards, no further details were listed at my source, The Guardian. It would be nice to see some more community archaeologists honoured, but nonetheless, congratulations to the award recipients.
