The annual John Gillam Prize, established in 2004, honours a key founder of our Group for his tremendous contribution to the subject. Nominations are now being accepted for the 2022 award. A wide range of work that has had an impact on pottery found in Roman Britain and the Continent is eligible, so long as it was completed within the last two years. Nominations can include pottery reports (both published and grey literature), site reports, monographs, synthetic studies, websites, student dissertations, digital projects, theses and so on. Any nomination must highlight specific aspects of Roman pottery from a technological, regional or thematic perspective. Please send your nominations to the President, who chairs the Gillam Committee.
