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

We reveal details of the Anglo-Saxon Prittlewell prince, as study of the burial excavated in 2003 is published and a new exhibition opens in Southend. In Reading, the Ministry of Justice has secretly excavated at Reading Prison, the subject of Oscar Wilde’s The Ballad of Reading Gaol and the site of the medieval Reading Abbey. Why the secrecy? We reveal the full story, and propose the exact location of Henry I’s grave – beneath the carpark tarmac of Reading Prison. Other features in a packed edition include a report on a new study of the end of the Bronze Age, a look at two of Britain's earliest scripts, and a consideration of how pots might inform our knowledge of Roman dining. Plus: how can archaeology stimulate older people in care homes to talk about their lives?
