Travelling the Past

 

How to explore the past. Where to go, what to see. Be guided by the experts.

I have spent my life travelling the past.

As editor of Current Archaeology, and more recently, Current World Archaeology, I have travelled to many sites around Britain and around the world.

Some I have reported in Current Archaeology, but here they are in greater detail.

Many have been trips I have enjoyed with my wife, and we would like to share them with you too.

I hope you will travel there yourself and will be able to enjoy some of these wonderful places.
