What’s the difference between a subscriber and a member of London Archaeologist?
None – just different terms for those who pay an annual fee for membership of The London Archaeologist Association (the charity that publishes the magazine), and as a result receive the magazine and supplements, and become eligible to participate in the AGM and other activities.
How can I get involved in archaeology?
It’s possible to get involved, even if you’re not a trained archaeologist. Go to a lecture at your local archaeological or historical society to find out what they do; join a taster course, such as those offered at Birkbeck College, the City Lit or WEA; Volunteer at one of the professional units or the Museum of London Archaeological Archive; or join the Thames Discovery Programme, who do important work on the foreshore all year round using only volunteers. There are also lots of contacts on our get involved page.
I have an idea for an article: can you publish it?
See the writing for LA section.
Can I do a placement or serve as an intern with LA?
Sorry! Because we’re a quarterly publication, run entirely by volunteers with no office premises, it’s just not practical to supervise students or interns. Try the professional units or the the Museum of London Archaeological Archive.
When do the magazines come out?
We publish as near as possible to the first of January, April, July and September.
Where can I buy a single issue of LA?
The current issue is on sale at the Museum of London book shop, and the last two years’ of back issues can be purchased via the Membership Secretary. You can find all back issues older than two years old via this link to ADS.
