Archaeology book award for PACT scholar

13 Oct 2017

Congratulations to Public and Contextual Theology Research Fellow Dr Alan Cadwallader who has received a prestigious international book award.

The Biblical Archaeology Society (BAS) named Fragments of Colossae: Sifting Through the Traces the 2017 Best Popular Book on Archaeology.

The prize was announced in September 2017 and the judges said the book was 'academic in quality yet popular in readability' which presents the 'historical background, cultural setting and material culture of the well-known New Testament city admonished by Paul in his epistle to the Colossians.'

The prestigious biennial BAS Publication Awards have been presented since 1985.
