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!

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

In this issue we go behind the scenes of the new film of the Sutton Hoo excavation: an interview with the director, perspectives from the British Museum and the National Trust, and what it’s like to be an archaeological advisor on a Netflix movie. Our Big Dig is a community project revealing a world of defended settlements, competitive hierarchies and fine crafts over 2,000 years ago on Scotland’s east coast. Scientists behind a breakthrough in radiocarbon-dating pottery explain the new technology, which is put to practice with a rare Neolithic London discovery. Radiocarbon is also responsible for rethinking the history of a large henge enclosure in Dorset, with big implications. Sculptor Antony Gormley talks about his long fascination with archaeology. And we have the usual columns, with news from around the world, highlights of the Council for British Archaeology’s work with communities and young archaeologists, TV and book reviews and more.
