Magazine Overview

About Archaeology

Archaeology Magazine is one of two publications of the Archaeological Institute of America, a 125-year-old nonprofit organization. The magazine has been published continuously for more than 50 years. Archaeology's feature-length articles cover all corners of the globe. Articles have covered such diverse topics as royal animal mummies, the discovery of an ancient Greek city swallowed by the sea, cultural heritage in Afghanistan under the Taliban, how Native Americans in the Southwest profited from an eleventh-century volcanic eruption, objects featured in the odd paintings of Hieronymous Bosch that have been found in excavations of his hometown; as well as photo essays on Etruscan tombs and the terra-cotta solders of China; and profiles of people who have made great contributions to archaeology. Publishing bimonthly, it brings to readers all of the exciting aspects of archaeology: adventure, discovery, culture, history, and travel.

I have received all my issues after waiting over a month and I thoroughly enjoy reading them cover to cover. Articles are not long drawn-out writings, most of them are short but very informative with tons of photographs. I would think just right for classroom usage--interesting, informative, exciting. I plan to renew my subscription, definitely! It was worth the waiting.

Love it!


I received my first copy in less than 2 weeks, then they sent the copy before that and I already have the Jan/Feb issue! The articles are well written without the writers trying to impress everyone with out of this world language. I took it into my 5th grade class and even those students could read and appreciate it. Keep up the good work I will definitely renew!

I was really amped to get this magazine. I waited more than a month from the time that I ordered it. I had hoped it would be a magazine that I could savor, but it only took me about 30 minutes to get through it. It wasn't terribly interesting. The articles have the quality of a high school magazine. Some are too short, others overlong. Plus, there were typos (plural) in one of the long articles that I read. Oh, well...

Five Stars easily


As a retired Social Studies teacher who specialized in world history, I find Archaeology excellent. I wish I would have had it years ago when I was teaching. Articles are well written and clear enough to use with students. Photos are clear and provide insight into the field of archaeology. In order to dispell worries of armageddon, I used archaelogical data to dispel students fears and prompt them to think. This magazine would have been an excellent tool.

Archaeology... Wonderful Publication!


I am enjoying the articles and photographs very much. They are of high interest level for my advanced students and pique the curiosity of the entire class. We are all learning something new each time we read it. Well done!

The magazine in a bit gaunt


I was anticipating and expecting more from the magazine, such as more photos, more pages (not more advertisements) and "ground breaking" articles with more substance. The magazine reads like a "club" magazine, where the jargon is tailored only for those in the club of Archeology. My first issue of Archeology took FOREVER to arrive and with it's meager content, the wait was disappointing.
