Those of you with unpublished articles on Scottish history lying around the house may wish to consider submitting one as an entry for the Murray Prize, a prestigious award presented annually by the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland. Entries should deal with an aspect of Scottish history (rather than archaeology) in the period AD 500 to 1700. The winning article gets published in the Society’s highly respected Proceedings, and its author receives cash and a medal.
The deadline for submissions has been extended to 30 November, which leaves plenty of time for entrants to tidy up stray endnotes, check obscure references and fix last-minute typos. So what are you waiting for? I’m sorely tempted to rustle up something myself and send it off before the deadline.
Now, if only that unfinished paper on the Anglo-Pictish invasion of Strathclyde was in better shape…..
