This is the official magazine of the Council for British Archaeology – an educational charity. The established voice for archaeology in the UK, the magazine aims to help readers discover, explore and protect our unique heritage.

The online version of the magazine affords institutions additional functionality such as a fully-searchable archive and unlimited IP-authenticated access, making it an excellent resource for academics and professionals.

Latest Issue:

Welcome to the July August 2024 issue of British Archaeology magazine. Inside we explore the lost monuments of the western Lake District, learn about best practice when it comes to using drones in archaeology, bust a whole load of myths that surround old buildings, explore the sources of silver that re-invigorated Anglo-Saxon coinage, and understand why our early prehistory has so much potential for future research and excavation. We visit Burgi Geos promontory fort, Yell, Shetland, learn more about the planning system and its impact on our historic buildings, celebrate 10 years of the Leeds Young Archaeologists’ Club, learn more about the nation-wide events taking place to celebrate the CBA’s 80th birthday, find out why senior curator (archaeology & world cultures), Bristol Museums, and chair of the CBA Board of Trustees, Gail Boyle fell in love with archaeology, explore the shared history of interpretation between archaeologists and artists, and ask whether archaeology has a drinking problem. Plus news, the world in Antiquity and more.
