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.
Our exclusive cover feature reveals the story behind a spectacular Anglo-Saxon helmet from the Staffordshire Hoard. The original was found in over 1,000 fragments of gilded silver, and after years of conservation and research, archaeologists took 18 months to create two scientific reconstructions. A Roman helmet was found within months of the Staffordshire Hoard, at Crosby Garrett in Cumbria: we have its story too, now that its definitive study has been completed. We go underwater to look at an extraordinarily well-preserved warship, HMS Invincible, whose French design had a profound impact on the 18th-century Royal Navy fleet. And we go to the British Museum to see Ashurbanipal, King of the World. With more excavations, discoveries, reviews, news and opinions, this is a packed edition we’ve found hard to keep quiet about!
