On the 30th November 2016, at the Museum National d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris, France, Sonia Harmand received – on behalf of all WTAP team members and the numerous other researchers, excavators, and students involved in our work – the La Recherche Prize for archaeology.
La Recherche is a monthly French language magazine reporting recent scientific news and discoveries. The prize was given in recognition of the Lomekwi 3 discovery (Harmand et al 2015), which was featured in the March-April 2016 edition of the magazine.
