Latest issue

The first British Archaeology of 2017 has three great exclusives. We report on significant new discoveries near Stonehenge, among them the grave of a man who might have seen the earliest megaliths erected; we tell the story of Roman pots and pans buried with flowers preserved by the corroding bronze; and we talk to Peter Lord, co-founder of Aardman, about archaeology, imaginary worlds and as much as we could persuade him to reveal about Early Man, their next film. We also feature five major excavations, from the Calanais megaliths on the Isle of Lewis, to a Roman town in Norfolk with an unusual story, and early medieval natives, immigrants and changing times in north-east Scotland. Not forgetting the great but little-known Edwardian excavator and photographer with a tragic secret, and much, much more.
