We lead with an exclusive feature about British mummies. Tom Booth and colleagues tell the story of how they came to realise that mummification was a common way to dispose of the dead in bronze age Britain. We hear about an Egyptian mummy, too – or at least the possibility that Nefertiti’s remains lie at the back of Tutankhamun’s tomb, told by the man who thinks she’s there. Northampton Council sold a remarkable Egyptian statue – we review the controversy and reveal the man who is thought to have brought Sekhemka to England in the 19th century. Duncan Wilson is Historic England's first chief executive – we have an important interview. With excavations, reviews, news (heard the story about the new stone row near Stonehenge? We reveal it’s even bigger than you thought) and much more, this is a packed edition of the UK’s best and most popular archaeology magazine.
British Archaeology the UK's most talked about archaeology magazine will suit anyone with a passion for delving into our past - whether you enjoy watching the latest archaeological TV documentaries, visiting historic buildings or digging on ancient sites!
It is an authoritative, in-depth source of information and comment on what’s new, interesting and important in the world of archaeology.
