Would you like £2,000 to spend on an archaeological project? Apply to the Andante Travels Archaeological Award and you could be in the running.

Andante Travels, one of the UK’s leading archaeological travel companies, is currently inviting applications from deserving archaeological projects at home and abroad. The only criteria are that entries should help to protect, or discover more about, our archaeological heritage.

Interested? Then describe your nomination on one page of A4, stating how the prize money would be spent and how you believe the cash would help your project. It can be your own project or one that has impressed you. The size of the project is not significant; all projects will be considered regardless of scale.

Previous recipients of this award have been Volubilis in Morocco, the monumental capital of the region in Roman times; and Kerkenes Dag, the largest pre-Hellenistic site on Turkey’s Anatolian Plateau.

Please submit your entry to Andante Travels Award 2007, The Old Barn, Old Road, Alderbury, Salisbury SP5 3AR (Tel 01722 713 800). The closing date is 9 November 2007 and the successful applicant will be advised by 7 December 2007. For further information on the company visit www.andantetravels.co.uk.

Imagine the difference this money could make and good luck!
