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 January/February 2023 issue of ARCHAEOLOGY features the Top 10 Discoveries of 2022. Other stories include the rare discovery of a Roman war horn, unearthing a statue of youthful Hercules, moving out of a Scottish castle, and casting bronze in ancient China.

American Journal of Archaeology

The AJA, one of the world’s most respected journals devoted to Mediterranean archaeology, has set the standard for archaeological scholarship since 1885. The January 2023 issue contains articles examining first-millennium BCE Greek houses, the Roman Arch at Orange, fountain use and water fetching at Pompeii, and unfinished Late Roman glass openwork vessels. Open-access content includes a study of a figure in the Villa of the Mysteries fresco, a review of a museum exhibition about Domitian, and a letter from the Editors-in-Chief.
