Well, I haven't used this discussion list to advertise, but seeing this from LoveArch prompts me to remind you all that Time & Mind - The Journal of Archaeology, Consciousness and Culture will commence its fifth year of publication in 2012: see www.bergjournals/timeandmind . It is a brave venture continuing in spite of the odds, and if you haven't seen it, you should. Its individual print subscription rate is incredibly low for a high quality, heavily illustrated peer-reviewed journal, but if you can't stump up 27 quid yourself you should at least get your organisations to subscribe. Like Adrian's journal, it is designed to sit between ivory-walled academe and intelligent lay readership. It is multi-disciplinary and diverse; it especially links archaeology and anthropology, it champions sensory archaeology, and is prepared to be controversial. It is backed by a lot of the great and the good (see the Editorial Advisory Board), and should be valued
reading for anyone in our spheres of interest. Even occasionally dirt archaeology - we've already had "exclusives" there. If things like TAG have their place, then so does T&M. Each issue will ensure you are a bit better informed than you were -- even about subjects you didn't even know you weren't informed about!

Subject: [BRITARCH] Love Archaeology Magazine
Please meet your new favourite thing: Love Archaeology Magazine.
We are proud to announce that the very first issue of Love Archaeology Magazine is NOW ONLINE! Created and run by University of Glasgow archaeology postgrads, LoveArchMag is published twice a year. This e-magazine showcases the fact that archaeology isn’t just about the past – it’s all around us. As such, we strive to include both cutting-edge research alongside the musings of archaeologists and non-archaeologists alike which showcase the potential of archaeological modes of thought. Our tone is smart but fun, providing a bridge between a popular archaeology magazine and an academic journal. Issue 1 features Barbie and Indiana Jones, alongside an extended consideration of archaeological approaches to extinction.
In other words, anyone can submit! If you’ve got a great idea or even a finished piece, first check out our Style Guide (see link above) then email us at [log in to unmask]
