Latest issue

A major ancient DNA study is throwing striking new light on the Breaker people: lead geneticist David Reich and archaeologist Ian Armit describe research that is overturning conventional ideas about one of the big questions of British prehistory. Many of the skeletons analysed in the study have been excavated recently near Stonehenge – but you have probably never heard about the excavations. In a British Archaeology special, we report on 15 years of fieldwork around Stonehenge, including major discoveries made ahead of the construction of thousands of new houses. Other features include a report on an unusual Anglo-Saxon execution cemetery in Hampshire, and a look into the varied work of National Trust archaeologists. We have evidence for the most recent elk yet found in Britain, we hear about a unique excavation of two bronze age hoards, and there are all the usual columns, reviews, news and comment.
