British Archaeology – Back Issue 162 (Sept/Oct 2018)

£6.00

On the cover: Excavating the A14

A huge and challenging excavation which uncovered hundreds of prehistoric burials, three henges, 40 Roman pottery kilns and three Anglo-Saxon villages, has just ended in Cambridgeshire. The project’s archaeological manager explains how it happened and describes what they found.

Among other stories

  • London’s medieval waterfront

Excavations beside the Thames 40 years ago revealed medieval timber structures built before the Great Fire and thousands of finds, which together form the foundation of the City of London’s post-Roman archaeology

  • The Victoria and Albert Museum Cast Courts

The second of two Cast Courts at the V&A reopens soon after a major restoration project. It is packed with full-scale replicas of historic European sculpture, from Trajan’s Column to the west portal of Santiago Cathedral and medieval crosses from Britain and Ireland.

  • British archaeology on a global stage

Eastern England has a remarkable range of historic sites and an unmatched archaeological story – explored in a pairing with Japanese sites and others around the world

  •  The Horniman’s new World Gallery

The Horniman Museum & Gardens was founded to show world cultures to Londoners. A century later the museum asked local people to help shape a new gallery displaying thousands of artefacts

  • The Ness of Brodgar

Archaeologists returned to the Ness of Brodgar this summer for the 15th excavation season. An update on the excavations is accompanied by some striking photography
