Brian Hodgkinson
Winner of BALH Award

Warm congratulations to Dr Brian Hodgkinson for winning the first prize awarded by the British Association for Local History in their 2023 Publications: Long Article category. This was for his article 'Stairway to Heaven: The Scala Celi Indulgence in Tudor Lincolnshire' published in Volume 52 of Lincolnshire History and Archaeology (the SLHA journal).

The award was announced at the Annual Meeting of BALH held on line on 18 May. In making the announcement, Dr Alan Crosby, Editor of the BALH Local Historian, said 'Brian has done an absolutely superb job, using very difficult medieval and early sixteenth-century sources, in putting together this little known aspect of the strange world of indulgences in late medieval Catholic Church'.
