British Archaeology is a bi-monthly magazine that looks in depth at the latest archaeology news, discoveries and research within the UK and from British Archaeologists working overseas.
As 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.
We lead with one of the UK’s first saints, an Anglo-Saxon woman called Eanswythe: research supports a tradition that remains found in a Kent church are hers. A prehistoric burial mound and an Anglo-Saxon cemetery have been the focus of an unusual military operation – an archaeological excavation. Most of the action in the movie 1917 was filmed on Salisbury Plain: we look at a century of digging trenches. With reports on new finds, from an exceptional Bronze Age hoard and an Iron Age bucket decorated with fish-tailed horses and giant chicken, more features, reviews and all the regular columns, there is much to read in this issue.
