The latest issue of our journal 'Post-Medieval Archaeology' is now available online to society members and institutional subscribers, and will be landing on members' doormats shortly. This is the first of three issues to be published this year, and members can now access all our journal articles via the Maney website, going back to volume one from 1967.
Journal highlights include the excavation of a 17th century glassmaking site in Co. Offaly, Ireland; a study of Chinese porcelain in Copenhagen, Denmark; evidence for shifting perceptions of turkeys in Britain during the post-medieval period; and two reports from excavations in Bristol, England - at the Civil War-era Royal Fort, and a study of archaeology with, and of, the city's contemporary homeless population. This issue also includes a bibliography in memory of former journal editor and long-standing member of the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology, Paul Courtney, compiled by his widow Yolanda.
