ImageWelcome to Current World Archaeology . . . 

On September 19th 2003, Current World Archaeology was launched in splendour at the Stationer's Hall, London, as a sister magazine to the long established Current Archaeology. The launch was a huge success and it has achieved a circulation of 11000 subscribers within the first 6 months. It is published six times a year in the even months.

The Scope

Current World Archaeology covers the world from the first emergence of man down to yesterday. There is inevitably a focus on Egypt, Mesopotamia and the Near East, and Greece and Rome, but don’t worry – the best of the rest of the world is also covered regularly.


Travel opportunities feature regularly in Current World Archaeology. There are both special country round-ups and advice on how to visit some of the more out-of-the-way sites.
