Tim Potter Memorial Award

In March 2004, the British School at Rome (BSR) awarded me the Tim Potter Memorial Award. The award is aimed at scholars who have not previously had much opportunity to visit Italy to stay at the school and undertake research on Italian material culture and archaeology. The award includes full board and accomodation at the BSR, plus £500 travel allowance and £150 per month stipend. I will take up the award between February and March 2005.

This is the School’s newest award and was created in memory of the eminent Roman archaeologist, Tim Potter who died in 2000. Tim Potter was closely involved with archaeological projects at the BSR, most significantly the South Etruria Survey. He was also Keeper of Prehistory and Early Europe at the British Museum, primarily working with, and publishing on Romano-British collections and archaeology. Read Federico Marazzi’s obituary of Tim Potter published in Archeologia medievale (in Italian).
