Latest issue

Crucifixion: a cruel, humiliating form of death reserved for condemned slaves, rebels and lower classes in the Roman empire. We know it happened, but physical evidence is very rare. Excavation at Fenstanton in Cambridgeshire has uncovered only the second known case – and the better preserved and the first from Europe – of a human heel-bone penetrated by a nail. This edition of British Archaeology carries the exclusive first report on the excavation and finds. Along with a feature on another major excavation, where sophisticated Roman sculptures were found beneath a Norman church at Stoke Mandeville, more digs, news, reviews and comment, this is a magazine not to be missed.
