Anthony Emery gives us a privileged look behind closed doors inside the great houses of medieval England, where we see a still-breathtaking display of medieval wealth and power. The pace never slows, as we move from evidence of a new prehistoric henge through to glimpses of the Romans at table; finally, we meet London’s last Roman and discover hints of secret rituals in the Yorkshire dales. News keeps us up-to-date, and anything missed out there, you will find in Chris Catling’s Diary. Editor-in-Chief Andrew Selkirk then looks at how the Society of Antiquaries made history, and asks the question: are farmers destroying archaeology?
