Publish With Us

We would like to say thank you to all 4000+ authors, contributors and editors publishing in BAR over the last 40+ years!

When Anthony Hands and David Walker started BAR in 1974 their vision was to build an ‘archaeological research databank’ which would be “relevant in 100 years’ time”. Our focus is still on publishing original work that will be used by research academics for decades to come.
