The award recognizes her scholarship in the classics and for her archaeological research.
“Sarah Morris has brought to light countless ancient artifacts at sites throughout the Mediterranean and produced scholarship that encompasses an impressive range of historical periods, in the process sparking new conversations and connections across disciplines, geographic areas, and historical periods to help us better understand the origins of Western civilization,” said Xiao-Li Meng, dean of  the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Harvard. “We are proud to award her the 2017 Centennial Medal.”
