The Royal Historical Society awards a number of prizes each year to recognise outstanding historical scholarship and achievement. The awards celebrate everything from the best performance by an ‘A’ level student to the best first book by an early career researcher. We are now very pleased to announce the launch of a brand new public history prize in partnership with the Institute of Historical Research’s Public History Seminar.
