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.

We lead from the cover with a controversial movie: we say by excluding archaeology or science, The Lost King gives a false view of the search for Richard III’s grave. What do you think? We also feature another famous grave, the Amesbury Archer’s near Stonehenge, excavated 20 years ago. More excavations in Northampton, where some large Anglo-Saxon halls pose questions about early kingship. A new study of a Celtic bucket, found in Wiltshire over two centuries ago, suggests its fine artistry may have celebrated an alliance defying the threat of Roman invasion. And regular columns include an interview with Rebecca Stott, author of Dark Earth, a novel about early London.
