SCAPE has won two awards at the prestigious British Archaeology Awards 2014. The Scotland's Coastal Heritage at Risk Project picked up the Best Community Archaeology Project; and the ShoreUpdate app and website won in the Best Innovation category.

Tom attended the event, held in the British Museum, as Jo and Ellie are still digging up in Sanday, Orkney (read all about the exciting discoveries here soon). He was presented the Best Community Archaeology Award by Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Culture, Ed Vaizey. The award for the Best Innovation was presented by TV personality and gastronome, Loyd Grossman. Congratulations to WildKnowledge who worked with SCAPE on the development of the app and website.

TV presenter and Council for British Archaeology (CBA) President, Dan Snow, was photographed with some of the 4D Wemyss Caves team during the ceremony.
