We're delighted to share that the winner of the London Archaeological Prize 2020 is The Cosmatesque Mosaics of Westminster Abbey Vol. 1 & 2 by Warwick Rodwell and David S. Neal published by Oxbow Books in 2019. The winner was announced at the London Archaeology Forum on 23 November 2020.
The judges described the winning volumes as “A fascinating multi-disciplinary recording and analysis of a complex of internationally important monuments. Despite the copious detailed recording, written in a clear and scholarly fashion, with some neatly turned, if not pithy, phrases and insightful analyses.”
There were nine nominations for the prize in 2020, it was a strong field with excellent entries, as one of the judges said: “There were so many good and important books…, it was difficult to choose.”
The nominees for the prize in 2020 were:
Congratulations to the winners!
