Archaeology dig it - Council for British Archaeology

Archaeology Matters

November/December issue of British Archaeology out now!

In this issue 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.

Issue 145 front cover

We also 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.
