Awards

Each fall the Council of Virginia Archaeologists (COVA) presents awards in memory of Michael Hoffman, Professor of Anthropology at the University of Virginia, and Virginia Sherman, Westmoreland County’s Historic Preservation Officer. The Hoffman Award, for organizations, and the Sherman Award, for individuals, recognize those outside of the professional archaeological community who have made significant contributions to archaeological site preservation or historic preservation within the Commonwealth. Some examples of possible recipients include local municipalities, corporations, politicians and developers.

In addition, the McCary Award is given jointly by the Archeological Society of Virginia and the Council of Virginia Archaeologists in recognition of the best student paper in prehistoric archaeology at the ASV Annual Meeting.
