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.
This edition of British Archaeology is full of treasures, from gold artwork to rotting timbers. We tell the stories hidden in a great coin hoard buried in Somerset just after the Battle of Hastings. Two features describe what archaeologists and collectors are finding in the riverside muds of the Thames as it flows through London. Another outlines new research into an Iron Age logboat found in Dorset 50 years ago. We explore the long history of the Uffington White Horse, and ruined stone houses in the Cumbrian fells. And there is the usual range of news, reviews and regular columns. But our greatest treasure is the Staffordshire Hoard. For the first time, we reveal what 10 years of research has established about this extraordinary find.
