Notes: This was issued by the British Art Medal Society, which was formed in 1982 with the purpose of encouraging contemporary medallic art in Britain and the study of medallic history. Each medal issued by BAMS is illustrated in its journal, The Medal, and is produced in a declared edition, the total number cast of this one being 24. Carole Hodgson (b.1940), studied sculpture and drawing at the Slade School. Her work can be seen in collections in the United Kingdom, the United States and on the Continent. In 1987, there was an exhibition at the British Museum of 'bogman', whose remains date to pre-Roman times, and to which this medal is a response.
