Each year, the Federation offers a travel bursary in honour of Martin Howe, an ex-President of the Fed who was involved with the organisation for many years.
Martin Howe was Curator at Peterborough Museum from the 1980s to the early 1990s, when he became ill and died at a young age. His background was in archaeology and he had excavated all over the place including in Scandinavia, but by instinct he was a polymath, interested in and knowledgeable about a wide range of human history. Together with Martin’s widow, the Federation decided a travel bursary would be a small but fitting way to commemorate his life.
The £200 bursary helps to cover travel and accommodation costs of the study trip and is open to all SEMFed members who have not been on the Study Trip before.
