The Collecting Egypt blog has taken a break over the last year due to busy schedules, thesis writing and change of jobs! We are pleased to report that the blog will now be back in regular contact with information and updates about the world of Egyptian antiquity collecting.
It is with pleasure that our first post of the year is to report that Professor David Gill, Head of the Division of Humanities and Professor of Archaeological Heritage at UCS, has been honoured with two awards for his contribution to highlighting public awareness and understanding within the field of archaeology. Professor Gill has received the prestigious Outstanding Public Service Award from the Archaeological Institute of America and he has also been honoured with the Saving Antiquities for Everyone 2012 Beacon Award for his research on the impact of the illicit antiquities trade.
Congratulations on two well deserved awards!
