The Archaeologist


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.llewellyn [at] archaeologists.net). Alex would also like to hear from anyone with an idea for a debate article, or a subject for our interviews.

Submitting articles

Each issue of The Archaeologist has a themed feature article, which tends to include a collection of shorter articles. Forthcoming themes are highlighted after the editorial of each magazine, along with submission dates. Please email your contributions to Alex Llewellyn (alex.llewellyn [at] archaeologists.net)

Future themes

Innovation can take many forms but is the historic environment sector maximising opportunities to share knowledge and implement different approaches? Are lessons being learned from other sectors and industries? CIfA and ALGAO recently collaborated on a Historic England funded project focused on building capacity through innovation, which highlighted some of the issues being faced by archaeologists along with good practice examples. This edition of The Archaeologist will continue on this theme with CIfA’s Jen Parker Wooding acting as guest editor. Examples of innovative practice will be showcased, with insight into the various challenges and barriers being faced Deadline 1 December 2020
