Alice Taylor wins RHS Whitfield Prize
The project team is delighted to congratulate Alice Taylor for winning the highly prestigious Whitfield Prize from the Royal Historical Society for her book The Shape of the State in Medieval Scotland 1124–1290 (Oxford 2016). As described on the RHS web page,
The Whitfield Book Prize has become one of the most sought after book prizes for early career historians. It was established by the RHS in 1976 at the bequest of Professor Archibald Stenton Whitfield, who was a Fellow of the Society from June 1916 until his death in 1974. The prize offers an annual award of £1,000 for a work on British or Irish history that is the author’s first sole book publication.
The book was key to the framing of the Models of Authority project and we are very happy indeed to see it receive this award.Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
