The winners of the Vice-Chancellor’s Staff Awards 2014 were announced at a prestigious ceremony held on the evening of 27 November 2014 in Kimmeridge House. Vice-Chancellor, Professor John Vinney recognised the achievements of shortlisted staff, along with those who had achieved long service, qualifications relevant to their role and promotion to Professor.

The team were nominated for the innovative way in which they have blended research, education and professional practice over a sustained period of time in order to enhance the student learning experience, but also to engage the wider community.

The Durotriges Project Team combine, in a wonderful way, research, education and professional practice.  Research because through excavation, they are attempting to unravel the history of the late Iron Age/Early Roman Period in South West England; education because they train generations of students from BU and further afield in the skills of the trade, and professional practice because they engage the wider public and volunteers and help people take the skills they’ve learnt into real life experience”.

“This project is a beacon of Fusion that does BU proud.
Professor Holger Schutkowski, Professor of Bioarchaeology, Faculty of Science and Technology
