Grants to Assist Publication



The Mediterranean Archaeological Trust, set up in 1959 for the promotion of the study of archaeology, invites applications for grants, made on a competitive basis, for expenses in 2017-18, in the preparation for final publication of material from archaeological excavation or fieldwork in the Mediterranean world, excluding subventions to publishers or publication of material not from a specific excavation, or in symposia. Within the terms of the Trust, priority may be given to publication of Bronze Age sites. Grants for any amount, however small, will be considered, provided they expedite publication. The grants do not normally exceed £ 2000.

Applications should be submitted on a form available for download (in .doc format) at the bottom of this page (please click on small down-arrow at the bottom right of the page).  Please provide all the information requested on the form and send it by e-mail attachment no later than 31 January 2018, to:

Dr Jai Clifford-Holmes – medarchtr (AT)
(in case of difficulty, please contact him on:  jai.clifford.holmes(AT)

Please follow the instructions on the form, taking care to indicate the importance of the site, your qualifications, other sources of support, and the present or planned status and place of publication.   The references (which are essential) should be sent directly by the referees to the same e-mail address and must meet the deadline of 31 January.

Successful applicants will be informed in April 2018, and it is essential that a report on the use of the grant is submitted by 30 November 2018
Failure to do so will mean that grant applications for the following three years will not be considered.

Additional guidelines for applicants and referees are available on the application form as well as by clicking here.
