Love archaeology?

British Archaeology the UK's most talked about archaeology magazine will suit anyone with a passion for delving into our past - whether you enjoy watching the latest archaeological TV documentaries, visiting historic buildings or digging on ancient sites!

It is an authoritative, in-depth source of information and comment on what’s new, interesting and important in the world of archaeology.

British Archaeology is a bi-monthly publication from the Council for British Archaeology – an educational charity. The established voice for archaeology in the UK, we're here to help you discover, explore and protect our unique heritage.

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

British Archaeology presents our biggest ever feature, on the Westminster world heritage site: distinguished writers review the extraordinary history and archaeology of the abbey and the palace, and we urge Parliament to move out to allow the palace restoration-and-renewal programme to proceed as soon as possible. There’s still room for much else: a major, history-changing excavation of a Roman settlement in the north of England; an exceptional bronze age hoard from near Dundee, with wood, sheepskin and textile remains as well as a gold-decorated spearhead (and the UK’s largest neolithic timber hall from the same site); we discover Britain’s totem poles (did you know there are 16?); and we hear of the potentially devastating impact of Brexit on UK archaeology. Plus all the usual columns, reviews and more. Miss British Archaeology, and you miss out on British archaeology.
