Current Archaeology gets back to the trenches! Included in this edition is our annual Dig Supplement.
Editor in Chief, Andrew Selkirk, shares his view of the recent newsworthy excavations at Stonehenge where, as ever, the Romans are making their presence felt. But were they really successful in Britain? Our ‘Britannia’ feature profiles modern events that shed new light on the end of Roman Britain. We then swiftly move up to Scotland for a look at the little-known coastal archaeology of North Argyll, then visit Glastonbury for a measured look at the quirky archaeologist who made digging the abbey his life’s work. Finally, we have an update on the controversial case of Seahenge.
