AHRC sends talented archaeologist to BU
6 August 2010
The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) will fund the course fees and additional living expenses when Mark starts his MSc in Forensic Archaeology: Crime Scene and International Investigations in September.
Mark said: “I am delighted that I am financially independent and have been presented with the opportunity to do what I wanted to do. I cannot wait to get started. I am free of financial concerns, am free of my barista duties at Starbucks and can focus on my course and studying.”
The AHRC issues grants to exceptional students. BU academics were impressed by Mark’s work during his BSc (Hons) in Archaeology and Palaeoecology at Queens University in Belfast, in which he received a First. BU staff submitted departmental statements to accompany Mark’s application and references.
The Arts and Humanities Research Council support world-class research to further knowledge of human culture and creativity. They help fund a wide variety of projects, ranging from ancient history and heritage science to dance and digital research.
