Thanks to all who nominated; it's up to the judges, now. We'll report back in January!

I nominate Thorgrim (Peter Herring) for the original articles he has written for the Megalithic Portal blog. From book reviews, feature articles about prehistoric and Early Medieval studies to lighter quizzes and ideas to enjoy visiting and photographing ancient sites,
Peter makes a complex subject accessible to a non-expert audience, and often initiates an lively discussion with the posters of comments on the site.
What is Silbury Hill?
New Light on a Dark Age - introducing our Dark Age collections.
