Gladstone Prize

In honour of the value Gladstone placed on the study of history, the Gladstone Memorial Trust made it possible for the RHS to launch the Gladstone History book prize in 1998 on the centenary of Gladstone’s death. The prize offers an annual award of £1,000 for a work of history on a topic not primarily related to British history that is the author’s first sole book publication.

Donation in support of the Gladstone Prize

The RHS is very pleased to announce that the Linbury Trust has made a donation of £12,500 over five years from 2015 in support of the Gladstone Prize. Many thanks indeed for this generous gift.
