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.
Across the UK hot, dry weather led to the appearance of exceptional archaeological cropmarks: for our cover story we rounded up the best photos, with commentary from archaeologists who spent their summers in the air. On the ground, we ask how ancient people moved megaliths – and explain why the popular idea of log rollers is wrong. And on the beach, archaeologists have been looking at the problem of plastic pollution in the Galápagos Islands. Plus a major feature on the origins of radiocarbon dating, with the story of how the first date was obtained for Stonehenge. With more features, news, reviews and opinions, this is another outstanding edition of Britain’s most popular archaeology magazine.
