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.
Global perspectives run through this issue, perhaps most unexpectedly in an archaeology project that brought together East Anglia and Japan. At the V&A curators are preparing to re-open the complete Cast Courts, created so people unable to afford a Grand Tour could experience European culture. London’s museums boast of global collections for a worldwide audience, and as a feature on a new gallery in the Horniman Museum shows, London itself is a world city, now as much as it was in the middle ages – for which see our feature about excavating the city’s waterfront. Our cover story, a huge and challenging excavation which uncovered hundreds of prehistoric burials, three henges, 40 Roman pottery kilns and three Anglo-Saxon villages, was made possible with the help of archaeologists from 30 nations. Plus news from excavations in Scotland, the cropmark drought dividend, TV and book reviews, and more.
