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.

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

Ahead of an announcement from the British Museum about a new archaeological project, we review the Benin restitution debate, focus on the work of British archaeologists in the former Nigerian kingdom, and consider the rights and wrongs of the “universal museum”. In Scotland, investigation of a rich archaeological landscape is throwing unexpected light on Pictish history and culture. And in London we showcase key discoveries from the UK’s largest urban archaeology project – Crossrail, the route of the Elizabeth line. Our usual regulars of reviews, news and opinion are joined by highlights from the 2022 Archaeological Achievement Awards, and our annual tribute to archaeologists and lovers of antiquity who have passed away.
