Among the articles in the trial issue, Mike Pitts reflects on the challenges facing the modern archaeologist, Jim Leary and David Field investigate traces of neolithic religion around Wiltshire's rivers and Sebastian Payne ponders the importance of the scientific side of archaeology.

Books are regularly reviewed in each issue of the magazine while the humorous 'Spoilheap' column keeps tabs on the curious lives of archaeologists. The 'Briefing' section lists the latest fieldwork excursions, excavations and archaeological conferences to keep readers in touch with the CBA network.

Latest issue

Global perspectives run through this issue, perhaps most unexpectedly in an archaeology project that brought together East Anglia and Japan. At the V&A curators are preparing to re-open the complete Cast Courts, created so people unable to afford a Grand Tour could experience European culture. London’s museums boast of global collections for a worldwide audience, and as a feature on a new gallery in the Horniman Museum shows, London itself is a world city, now as much as it was in the middle ages – for which see our feature about excavating the city’s waterfront. Our cover story, a huge and challenging excavation which uncovered hundreds of prehistoric burials, three henges, 40 Roman pottery kilns and three Anglo-Saxon villages, was made possible with the help of archaeologists from 30 nations. Plus news from excavations in Scotland, the cropmark drought dividend, TV and book reviews, and more.
