British Archaeology Magazine

British Archaeology is our award-winning bi-monthly publication, published by the CBA, focusing on the latest archaeology news, discoveries, and research within the UK and from British Archaeologists working overseas. With articles from the CBA team, it is a great way to get to know the work we do.

The President, Chair, and Executive Director and Company Secretary of the Council for British Archaeology have written to His Majesty King Charles III to express their condolences. 

The Council for British Archaeology (CBA) helps people to experience and take part in archaeology through our network of groups and members. We run the Young Archaeologists’ Clubs for young people aged 8-16 and the annual Festival of Archaeology to encourage everyone to discover the places and spaces around them.

Founded in 1944, we champion and help safeguard archaeology and public participation. As the voice of archaeology in the UK we bring together community groups, commercial units, academics and heritage organisations to create and share opportunities to discover, take part and be inspired by archaeology.
