Latest issue

In a packed issue we lead with new research at an ancient village in Cornwall, where you can walk among remains of Roman-era houses. Roman Britain survives most prominently in its roads: Sasha Trubetskoy presents his unique guide in the style of London’s underground map. Roman wells and kilns – and perhaps vineyards – are mong finds made at roadworks near Lincoln that range over six millennia. Medieval writers said pre-Roman Mediterranean migrants founded Britain: could this myth itself be prehistoric? We explain how a wooden hut occupied by St Columba over 1,400 years ago has been identified in Scotland, describe what archaeologists found when human bones fell onto a Welsh beach, and hear from a project that is finding world war two flying-boats under the sea. Plus reviews, comment, news, an interview with land artist Richard Long, and yet more!
