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.
With Stonehenge in the news, our lead feature is a look at the newly published results of a seven-year excavation project in the World Heritage Site. We also visit some hillforts – one neglected and one newly discovered – and an urban park with a surprising history. We ask why archaeologists are concerned about metal detecting rallies, and what the evidence is that Anglo-Saxon people laid out their settlements on measured grids. We consider the effect of covid-19 on young archaeologists and report on an Archaeology Festival that had to go online. With news from the UK and around the world, TV and book reviews and more, there is plenty to read – as we raise a glass of Falernian wine to novelist Rosemary Sutcliff, born 100 years ago this month.
