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 striking shot of masked archaeology students on an excavation at Auckland Castle leads our theme: some say a crisis faces the future of UK archaeology as we know it. What are the concerns? Are they real? And what can be done? Whatever the worries, archaeologists continue to find new stories. Excavations in this issue include the discovery of a unique Neolithic saltworks in Yorkshire, and a project to throw new light on Lincoln Castle. As the British Museum tells the story of Nero, we trace the emperor’s footprints in Britain – and his toppled statues. A study has brought new insights into how Iron Age torcs (neck-rings of precious metal) were made, and we continue our series about the history of radiocarbon dating.
