Recent Archaeology Mags

Aard enjoys complimentary subscriptions to a number of popular archaeology magazines from which I learn a lot before passing them on to the Fisksätra public library. Here are my favourite stories from three recent issues that have crossed my current-reading shelf.

Current Archaeology 234, Sept.

Current Archaeology 236, Nov.

  • A huge 7th century gold and silver hoard found recently in Staffordshire. Excellent pix! I haven’t blogged about this since it’s been all over the mainstream news and I had little to add. (10 pp.)
  • A London tide mill, sturdily built in the 1190s and well preserved in the river sediments, its great wheel partly still in place (6 pp.).

Archaeology Nov/Dec.

    One that I’ve started reading is American Archeology. There are only excerpts of the contents online, though.

    Hm, the Current Archaeology links are 404 broken.

    Their site has crapped out. The links on the start page to individual stories don’t work. Hope they get their faeces together soon.

    I’d like to recommend Biblical Archaeology Review for archaeology of the ancient Near East – as I would even if I didn’t work there :-).

    There’s also quite a bit of info on our website.
