Audrey Henshall Legacy Fund

To develop and undertake impactful research on pre-Roman archaeology in Scotland

Thanks to a generous bequest to the Society from Audrey Hensall OBE HonFSAScot, we are delighted to announce a new Grant opportunity from the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland

Reflecting Audrey Hensall’s wishes, and her research interests, the Society is pleased to offer a significant opportunity to fund one or more major project/s (up to a total of £50,000) to develop and undertake impactful research on pre-Roman archaeology in Scotland.

The legacy stipulates that the funds “…shall be used for research or fieldwork on pre-Roman antiquities in Scotland and not for general excavation work, and that the said Society will publish the results of such research or field work.” For the avoidance of doubt, we have determined that this includes survey and desk-based work as well as excavation of pre-Roman antiquities in Scotland. 

An initial call for ‘Expressions of Interest’ (EOI) is now closed. Final applications for this grant are now being considered and decisions will be made by the Grants and Awards Committee by the end of June 2024.

Smaller grants of up to £10,000 will be available through the Audrey Henshall Legacy Fund in due course.
