CBA Challenge Funding
[SIZE=3]Voluntary [/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]groups and societies, but also individuals, are challenged to put forward proposals for innovative projects hat will say something new about the history and archaeology of local surroundings, and thus inform their future care. Proposals will be judged on their intrinsic quality, and evidence of capacity to see them through successfully.

First and foremost, the panel is looking for original research. Awards can be to support new work, or to support the completion of research already in progress, for example by paying for a specific piece of analysis or equipment.

In principle, almost anything that is directly related to the actual undertaking of a project. Examples of what could be applied for include equipment, drawing and photographic materials, scientific dating, travel for historical research, or environmental analysis. There is also the potential to support innovative ideas for disseminating project results.

The following are excluded from CBA Challenge Funding:
salary costs;
publication production costs;
projects taking place outside of England (until further notice due to current funding stipulations);
work arising from courses in higher education, such as dissertations and theses, and retrospective awards for work already arried out.

Furthermore, the scheme is primarily designed to encourage research, so proposals which are essentially to do with promotion (for example new guidebooks, displays, or exhibitions) will normally fall outside the scope of CBA Challenge Funding.


So all you archaeologists out there get stuffed but it seems to me that getting yourself a metal detector would suit the criteria all the way to the ground.

Reason: your past is my past
