The London Archaeologist Association publishes London Archaeologist four times a year, and has done since 1968. Because London has one of the most active archaeological programmes in the world, we have a global membership. Why not join us?
As archaeology in London has changed radically over the past 50 years, so too have The Association and the magazine itself. Both remain true to the original aims, which have always been to provide an up to date record of archaeological activity, issues and practice in the capital. In addition, we now work towards promoting education and information on archaeology, encouraging involvement at all levels and providing a forum for views and ideas. Find out more about all we do.
The magazine contains research articles, features, news, book reviews, opinion pieces, diary of events and letters to the editor. It’s intended for anyone who is concerned with the archaeology of London, whether professional archaeologist, student, local society member, historian, heritage worker or interested individual. More can be found about writing for the magazine here.
London Archaeologist is run by a completely voluntary, but very professional team that is elected annually in May at the AGM. The production of the magazine, marketing, membership and financial matters are handled by the officers. The officers are joined on the Publication Committee by up to six further ‘ordinary’ members, drawn from the professional and voluntary side of archaeology. These members provide additional ideas, guidance and hands-on participation in our activities.
The current committee members are listed here. If you might be interested in serving on the committee, contact the Secretary for more information.
The organisation is a registered charity, no 262851.
“ …the major source of archaeological information remains The London Archaeologist. The articles and site reports in that periodical are invaluable.”
