Archaeology Matters

Institutional subscriptions

Institutions such as schools, colleges and libraries can now benefit from an institutional subscription to our magazine, giving all of their staff and students digital access to more than 150 issues of British Archaeology, going back to 1995.

A selection of British Archaeology covers from over the years

British Archaeology is unique, an award-winning magazine written and produced by archaeologists excited about their latest breakthroughs. With over 150 issues back to 1995, you can read a huge number of interviews, features, news reports, reviews and columns. Photos, diagrams, stories and ideas convey the thrill of discoveries and advances as they happened, building a searchable record of what archaeologists were doing from one year to the next, and revealing an ever-growing picture of life in the past.

With flair and authority, we cover the work of British archaeologists at home and around the world – from early humans to the 21st century, from science to art, from books to TV, and all the issues that matter. Explore decades of discovery, with the (digital) voice of archaeology, in Britain and beyond.

Within an institutional subscription, all of your staff or students can benefit from more than 20 years of archaeological insight.  An integral keyword search allows users to search for a term across a specific issue, year, decade or the whole archive, and then also to bookmark the relevant pages. Readers can interrogate all past content to find stories and references that interest them, and use the digital subscription to enhance their own knowledge and study of archaeology.

Features of an institutional subscription include:

  • IP authenticated access - no requirement to login with username and password.
  • Remote/EzProxy access for registered users off site, as well as Shibboleth authentication.
  • Fully searchable archive. Search by keyword and using Boolean operators. Each individual page has a persistent URL.
  • Detailed statistical reporting provided in the administrator account.
  • Extensive linking of each issue, including URLs, e-mail addresses, post codes and page numbers.

Our institutional subscriptions are offered through Exact Editions, a well-renowned digital content distributor whose subscriptions are seamlessly accessible on a wide range of devices, via the web portal or iOS and Android apps.
