Latest issue

Prehistoric settlements, a Roman village, a War of the Roses battlefield and historic cemeteries are just some of the sites where work has begun on the route of High Speed 2, the UK’s major new railway scheme. In this edition HS2’s head of heritage explains the approach to a uniquely challenging and large scale archaeological project, and hints at things to come. Our second major feature covers a significant public consultation on the Treasure Act, with expert commentaries and stories from a wide range of perspectives on something that could affect how any archaeology is conducted in England and Wales. In addition we report on a project to record forgotten First World War shipwrecks, a rare Anglo-Saxon helmet found in a grave, a newly identified Mesolithic cemetery, and much more, with all the usual reviews, news and regular columns.
