In December 2015, the project was one of ten recipients of a Fieldwork Discovery Award at the 2nd Shanghai Archaeology Forum. On the first day of the Shanghai University conference, the Mayor of Shanghai presented a gold medal and certificate to Dr. Bisserka Gaydarska on behalf of the project (video available below). The ceremony was the culmination of a long selection process, in which judges from 45 countries whittled down 93 entries to a final list recognising the top ten field projects of 2013-14. Later that day, Professor John Chapman gave a 30 minute presentation on the project to over 250 conference delegates.
