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.
Ahead of this year’s annual UK Festival of Archaeology, we celebrate its theme of Exploring Local Places. Such places can have national significance, as we see on the borders between England and Wales (a castle), and Scotland and England (a bridge). On the Norfolk coast mammoth collectors are finding remains of international importance, while a study of ancient DNA from people buried around Stonehenge is throwing new light on Bronze Age migrants from the European continent. Our cover features a stadium in York, former home to the City Football Club. In a pioneering project, Historic England has been recording memories and helping to see that the site’s redevelopment reflects its history: preserving the local for future generations.
