Unearthing key archaeological discoveries online

A decade of archaeological research made available free to UK colleges and universities

A new JISC Collections agreement ensures that all staff, researchers and students in UK further and higher education institutions have completely free access to the archived articles from a dynamic peer-reviewed independent online journal, which is designed to be responsive to new research in archaeology – Internet Archaeology.

Internet Archaeology is widely considered amongst the academic community to be innovative and forms an integral part of archaeological teaching and research in the UK. JISC Collections has purchased the Internet Archaeology Archive on behalf of UK higher and further education institutions, which means that they can now have permanent access to ten years of rich multimedia scholarly content completely free of charge. Staff, students and researchers will have access to authoritative articles from 1996-2006, which are published by the Council for British Archaeology and hosted by the Department of Archaeology at the University of York.
