The latest volume of Archaeology International (Vol 26, 2023), published by UCL Press, showcases the expansive range of research and activities of the staff of the UCL Institute of Archaeology based in Bloomsbury and at Archaeology South-East (ASE).

The volume contains an Editorial by Andrew Reynolds as well as the Director's View from 2022-23 from Kevin MacDonald. The usual bookshelf of recently published research is included as well as a global perspective on the past with information about the Institute of Archaeology around the world, alumni reflections and a glimpse from the archives.

Research articles include On not seeing like a state: rethinking ancient Honduras (the subject of The Gordon Childe Lecture 2023); Re-thinking Chalcolithic landscapes in southeast Iberia: the case of the Middle Antas river (Almeria, Spain); Catbirds and crabholes: the 2023 field season at Marco Gonzalez, Belize; Living with the dead: mummification and post-mortem treatment in Bronze Age Britain and Medieval pastoralism: lessons for our landscape.

Research updates cover subjects such as Evaluating wellbeing with participants in archaeology at the National Trust; UCL’s Centre for Applied Archaeology: the end of an era of Erasmus+ partnership projects; Recent scientific research, training and consultancy on ancient ceramics at UCL Institute of Archaeology; A Roman villa at Newhall, Harlow, Essex; Museum Memes and The Archaéo-Sexism exhibition at UCL.

The journal, produced annually since 1997, combines news about Institute of Archaeology and ASE activities with reports on research, both new and on-going projects, carried out by members of our community.
