In a new section, State of the 'Arch', we ask archaeologists to reflect on both the current state of archaeological practice and the media we use.

Geoffrey Wainwright (Chief Archaeologist for English Heritage) outlines how British Archaeology has changed over the past decade and points towards issues for the future in 'Archaeology Today'. assemblage is especially proud to ask Kathryn Denning (Sheffield), the editor of the first issue of this journal, to reflect on archaeology's use of the Internet in 'I link? or Ink? therefore I am'.

In a new regular section, Graham McElearney (Sheffield) gives us the lowdown on computer technology for the technophobe in 'Graham's Guide to Software for Archaeologists'.

Go on, e-mail assemblage today!
