Latest issue

Our front cover features the Roman god Mithras, and the new temple reconstruction at Bloomberg London, a remarkable story of archaeology, art and business. Our Big Dig is Glenfield Park, where 11 cauldrons have been found at an iron age settlement. Repairs to the roof of Westminster Hall are underway, but why are archaeologists excluded from examining one of the great wonders of medieval Europe? And why do archaeologists want help with excavating treasures? A Cornish megalithic ruin has a message from the past, we look back 60 years to the most successful of all archaeology TV series, and we have a report on excavation at a wealthy bishops’ palace. And there is much more, with reviews, photography, exhibitions and stories from the world of archaeology in Britain – including news of finds described as the flint equivalents of the megaliths at Avebury and Stonehenge.
