Fifty years of "Medieval Archaeology" available online

In honor of their fiftieth anniversary of publication, the scholarly journal Medieval Archaeology has made fifty years of articles available on the web in scanned-page format, free for nonprofit research and educational purposes.

The articles, dating back to 1957, have been scanned into Adobe Acrobat PDF. The entry page to the web site links to a copyright/liability statement and a Common Access Agreement. These documents allow educational and research use of the articles without fee, provided certain conditions are met by teachers and students to protect the rights of the authors and that proper citations of the source are given.

As an example, the articles in the first issue include:

  • Notes on Jutish art in Kent between 450 and 575
  • The Saxon House - A Review and Some Parallels
  • An Inlaid Iron Folding Stool in the British Museum
