Endowed through a bequest from distinguished archaeologist Beatrice de Cardi FSA who was President of the British Foundation for the Study of Arabia, the first Secretary of the Council for British Archaeology, and a recipient of the Society’s Gold Medal.

What is it for?

These awards are for the furtherance of archaeological research by field survey, excavation and the publication of the fieldwork in the United Arab Emirates, the Sultanate of Oman, Saudi Arabia, and the Pakistan province of Balochistan.

Because of the limited excavation season in the region to which this grant applies the deadline for reporting is extended to 30 June of the year following the granting of the award.

What do we fund?

  • Projects where the Society will be the main or a significant financial contributor
  • Support for definable objectives with specific, measurable outcomes within larger projects funded from a range of sources (but not simply ‘topping up’ applications to major funding bodies)
  • We welcome applications by early career researchers, and for projects that are innovative in their approach, entail new initiatives, and/or create interdisciplinary interest.
  • Applications must be from the project director or principal investigator.

What project costs are eligible?

  • travel & subsistence for members of the project team
  • costs of specialist or scientific investigation, and of technical services such as imaging and illustration, where these have to be commissioned
  • hire of plant and site accommodation
  • materials and consumables
  • hire of specialist equipment to which the applicant cannot reasonably be expected to have access

What project costs are ineligible?

  • personal remuneration
  • salaries of staff holding current appointments
  • institutional overheads
  • internal hire charges within the applicant’s institution or between project partners
  • publication subventions and publication grants (including costs of digital dissemination)
