This month CA follows the pilgrimage along Hadrian’s Wall to bring you a special issue dedicated to one of Roman Britain’s most iconic monuments.

Issue 239 opens with a feature from Northumberland. On the surface, it might seem like a routine rescue excavation.

It’s been another big month for archaeology! Hard on the heels of the Staffordshire Hoard comes another amazing discovery: Bluestonehenge.

CA 234

Issue 234 begins by highlighting just how important the little things are in archaeology: what can we learn from Late Roman military insignia? More than a mere fashion statement, these markers show surprising movements, links and trends. What about fragments of Iron Age coin moulds? These discarded lumps of clay are evidence that skilful artisans […]

Issue 233 opens with an in-depth look at the biggest dig ever undertaken in Liverpool: the excavation of the city’s Old Dock. The Old Dock was responsible for shaping the fortunes of Liverpool, and CA examines how the city’s ingenious engineering and ambitious land reclamation are reflected in the archaeology. Following on from that, we […]

This month’s Current Archaeology offers in-depth looks at stories that have been front-page news in recent weeks.   We begin with conclusions: as presented by Alice Roberts in the BBC’s new documentary on human evolution, are we all Africans?
