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.
Our front cover features Boudica bearing down on London. Inside we focus on three Iron Age leaders who faced Roman armies in Britain, France and Germany. Dramatic remains have been recorded at two of the battle sites, but Boudica’s continues to be elusive. Could it have been in Cambridgeshire? In Scotland over 200 palm-sized distinctively decorated stone balls have been found, carved in the Neolithic. How might they have been used? In England a few carved chalk cylinders with similar decoration may hold a clue to how Stonehenge was laid out. We report on a local amateur group who borrowed some geophysics kit and made significant discoveries, and archaeologists in Wales who excavated an Iron Age house they had built 40 years ago. And we reveal part of only the second Bronze Age sun chariot to be identified from the British Isles.
