Archaeology Magazine

ARCHAEOLOGY has been published continuously for 75 years by the Archaeological Institute of America, which is dedicated to supporting archaeological inquiry and to fostering the pursuit of knowledge about human heritage. The July/August 2024 issue of ARCHAEOLOGY features excavations of the locales where Alexander the Great spent his youth. Other stories include the discovery of Roman poison seeds, finding the sanctuary of a Persian water goddess, and manufacturing rubber in Mesoamerica.

American Journal of Archaeology

The AJA has set the standard for respected scholarship of Mediterranean archaeology since 1885. The July 2024 issue contains articles examining a white-ground cup found in northwestern Anatolia, the history of House M8A at Dura-Europos, excavations in the ancient city center of Sardis, and a mason’s mark on Naxos. Open-access content includes analyses of feminine sacrificial attendant figures on the Column of Trajan and of an architectural graffito in Attica, a review of an exhibition exploring lamps and artificial light in ancient Rome, and a letter from the Museum Reviews Editor.
