Congratulations to Mike Parker Pearson and colleagues who have won this year's Ben Cullen Prize, awarded to the runner up for best contribution to Antiquity.

Every year the journal awards the Antiquity Prize for the best article they have published, and the Ben Cullen Prize for the runner up. The Ben Cullen Prize was set up many years ago by Ian Gollop in memory of his friend, a bright archaeology scholar at Cambridge, who died tragically young.

This year the panel of judges decided to award the Ben Cullen Prize to the article by Timothy Darvill, Peter Marshall, Mike Parker Pearson & Geoffrey Wainwright  on ‘Stonehenge remodelled’. As part of the award the article is available on open access.

In their article the authors present the latest account of the sequence of burial and construction at the site of Stonehenge, deduced by its most recent excavators and anchored in time by the application of Bayesian radiocarbon modelling.
