British Archaeology launches digital archive

British Archaeology has partnered with digital publishing specialists Exact Editions to launch its complete 21-year archive.

Leading institutions such as universities, government departments, colleges and libraries are now able to instantly access all issues, dating back to 1995, via the app or online. This allows users to browse more than 150 issues on their preferred device, with IP authentication allowing users access both on and off site.

Exact Editions’ search technology allows users to get the most out of this extensive resource. Users can search for a term across a specific issue, year, decade or the whole archive, and then also to bookmark the relevant pages.

According to Exact Editions, the launch of this archive will give readers, with a passion for human prehistory and a desire to explore the vast and rich history of the field, the opportunity to engage with the all the latest developments within British archaeology: whether it’s remaining up to date with recent TV documentaries, book publications, gaining access to interviews with industry specialists or following the progress of current excavations.

Exact Editions’ Managing Director, Daryl Rayner, said about the digital launch: “We are thrilled to work with British Archaeology to make such a rich resource available to individuals and institutions worldwide. The magazine looks fantastic online as well as on the app and will certainly be an invaluable resource to archaeology enthusiasts!”

David Moore, Communications Officer of British Archaeology said: “This exciting collaboration with Exact Editions will help further the aim of The Council for British Archaeology to not only involve people in archaeology, but also to promote the appreciation and care of our historic environment for the benefit of present and future generations.”
