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.
Prehistoric settlements, a Roman village, a War of the Roses battlefield and historic cemeteries are just some of the sites where work has begun on the route of High Speed 2, the UK’s major new railway scheme. In this edition HS2’s head of heritage explains the approach to a uniquely challenging and large scale archaeological project, and hints at things to come. Our second major feature covers a significant public consultation on the Treasure Act, with expert commentaries and stories from a wide range of perspectives on something that could affect how any archaeology is conducted in England and Wales. In addition we report on a project to record forgotten First World War shipwrecks, a rare Anglo-Saxon helmet found in a grave, a newly identified Mesolithic cemetery, and much more, with all the usual reviews, news and regular columns.
