The Archaeologist

About the Journal


CIfA produces a regular magazine called The Archaeologist, which takes a look at current issues that concern professional archaeologists.

Each edition offers a feature article concerned with aspects of the profession seen from a variety of perspectives alongside member news, book reviews and short articles. We occasionally include an interview or debate article which aims to bring current news and views to all members.

Each issue highlights our new members alongside member news, and our Registered Organisations often provide updates and project news.


If you have some news you would like to pass on to other members, or a project you are keen to promote, please get in touch with the magazine editor, Alex Llewellyn. Alex would also like to hear from anyone with an idea for a debate article, or a subject for our interviews.
