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.
A rock that holds the story of humanity: our cover shows a flint nodule rebuilt by archaeologists from the debris left when someone made a flint knife – its shape can be seen from the hollow it left. This is part of the extraordinary evidence for how a group of people butchered a horse at Boxgrove, West Sussex, 480,000 years ago. We tell the story of the dig, of what was found, and how archaeologists pieced it all together to gain unique insights into early human behaviour. Also featured are archaeologists in a World War Two propaganda movie, an Anglo-Saxon hall newly built in Oxfordshire, and the search for the grave of an unjustly hanged man. With new columns including a review of archaeology around the world and all our usual regulars, this is a packed edition of the UK’s best archaeology magazine.
