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.
This edition features some extraordinary stories, all described by the archaeologists who researched them. On the cover is Waun Mawn, the newly discovered stone circle in Wales with claimed links to Stonehenge. Also featured is Richard II’s oak roof in Westminster Hall, where a new study has revealed the efficiency with which the huge structure was built. Excavations in the grounds of the former Covent Garden Workhouse are revealing striking evidence for the harsh world of the 19th-century poor, and from Norfolk we feature an obscure industry once critical to British global power that collapsed after Waterloo, leaving families out of work and men dying of silicosis. There is a special focus on community archaeology in Wales, and all the usual reviews, comment and news from around the world.
