Subscribe to Archaeology Worldwide, the global archaeology magazine. 

Archaeology Worldwide is the UK’s fully global archaeology magazine. Bursting with in-depth features, columns, travel, museums, and books, each issue has DOUBLE the content of all equivalent magazines. Written, edited, produced by archaeologists, it is designed exclusively for digital reading. Published quarterly. Read on your tablet, on your phone, on the go. 


What sorts of subscriptions do you offer?

Two! For an annual (best value), or half yearly sub, click the SUBSCRIBE button. You will receive new issues as they are released, and each issue is yours to keep. This option is provided by Pocketmags. It is safe and guaranteed.

Where can I get my free copy?

Yes. Click either of subscribe buttons (depending on your subscription preferences) and then simply click on ‘give as a gift’ at the checkout stage. The magazine will be sent wherever you wish. Click here to discover more, and to access a gift certificate. 

How often are you published?

Quarterly. With double the content of all equivalent magazines, and entirely advert free, there is much to read! Designed exclusively for digital reading, and unfettered by traditional print-magazine page counts, every issue digs deep into each subject. 

Who are you and who are you for?

Archaeology Worldwide is edited, designed, and published by a team of independent archaeologists. All of its writers are leaders in the field. Result: each issue is not just devilishly entertaining but also rigorously accurate. 

The magazine is for anyone who wants to read high quality archaeological writing that is jargon-free, informative, entertaining.

Of course! Take a look at the free copy below, and if you enjoy it, click on the SUBSCRIBE button above and get your first copy for 99p. Cancel within the trial period (two months) if it is not for you. Individual issues are also available to buy.
