Winnipeg Free Press writer Bill Redekop has been honoured by the Canadian Archaeological Association for a story he wrote in 2011.
The association recently honoured Redekop with a Public Communication Award for his story entitled Hydro crew hits historical bonanza: Rock piles mark Thompson post.
Redekop won in the Writer/Producer category.
“This article about an accidental discovery of an unusual pile of rocks that turned out to be the remains of a fort built and burned by David Thompson in 1792-93 weaves together the work of the archaeologists uncovering the site with the life and adventures of Thompson himself,” the association said.
The award was announced in late May at the association’s annual conference in Montreal.
Redekop, the newspaper’s regional reporter, has been with the Free Press since 1988. He has won a Manitoba Human Rights Commission Journalism Award (1994) and a Canadian Mining Institute News Award (1998), and co-won a National Newspaper Award for coverage of Manitoba’s 1997 Flood of the Century.
