The Royal Archaeological Institute (RAI) is a leading national archaeology society and since 1844 we have annually published the Archaeological Journal. The journal contains papers on the Institute's interests, which span all aspects of the archaeological, architectural and landscape history of the British Isles. It presents the results of archaeological and architectural survey and fieldwork on sites and monuments of all periods as well as syntheses and overviews of such work in the British Isles.

The RAI has digitially scanned and made available the first 120 years of the Archaeological Journal, which are available to view through this website.

More recent journals, from Volume 121 through to the latest published articles, are available through the RAI´s commerical publishers Routledge on the Taylor & Francis website. These are free to subscribing libraries and members, and are otherwise available on a pay-per-view basis.


The digital articles available here, and any copyright images within them, remain the copyright of their authors and the RAI. They may be downloaded for research and teaching purposes but must not be resold or made available on any other website or on any other medium with or without charge, unless with the prior written consent of the Institute and the relevant copyright holders.
