The Post Hole Year in Review

Posted on 23 July 2013

It's been a successful year for the Post Hole, as reviewed here by the outgoing editorial team

23-07-2013 The Post Hole covers

The Post Hole, an archaeology journal run by undergraduate students at the University of York, and now also other universities across the UK, has had a successful past year. The current editorial team joined the journal in time to publish Issue 24 in October 2012 and will be succeeded by a new team of students following the release of Issue 31 in August this summer.

Over the last nine months the number of readers of The Post Hole has considerably grown, with more than half now outside the UK. This change is perhaps due to the refreshed presence of the journal online with a new website, new pages on Facebook and Twitter, and just this week a new podcast series on YouTube!

One thing hasn’t changed; The Post Hole continues to publish significant articles by a diverse range of people, including students, academics and members of the public, on exciting research, debates and personal interests about the past.

This inclusivity is what makes The Post Hole such a unique publication in the world of archaeology. Anyone can write for The Post Hole and submissions to are currently being accepted until the 9th August for the final issue of the current team.

As well as Issue 31, the outgoing team will release two special features this summer. Follow The Post Hole on Facebook or Twitter for news on a forthcoming tribute to Mick Aston and an exciting interview you will not want to miss!
