To celebrate the upcoming New Year, and the 20th Anniversary of Assemblage, the journal is moving to a new shiny webpage (, and we encourage everyone to go and have a browse! The new Journal 14 is published there for your enjoyment, and all of the past content from this page will be moving over in the near future. Until then, never fear! All your favorite past journal articles, conference and book reviews, and blog posts will still be available from this site.

We hope that you all enjoy the new webpage, and the assemblage team wishes you a happy Holiday Season!


 Welcome back students!! We hope your first few weeks of in the new term have been going well. We've been busy in the field Croatia, Canada, Belize and sunny sunny Lincolnshire. Very soon we will be publishing the newest issue of assemblage, posting new book reviews, notes from the field, conference reviews, blog posts, and sending out a call for papers! We also want to welcome our new team of editors (we're quickly being out numbered by a Canadaian majority) so be sure to look for their team biographies in the next couple of weeks as well.  So welcome back, and more news soon!! 


Spring is in the air, and conference season is truly underway.  Students and professors in the archaeology department are polishing up presentations, and taking Sheffield’s research around the world. Stay tuned for upcoming conference reviews! 


The summer field season is also quickly approaching, so it’s time to start dusting off the trowels and hiking boots! Keep a look out on the Universities webpage for some great field school opportunities!


For some light spring reading, take a look at our book reviews on ‘Ebla and its Landscape by Matthiae, P. and Marchetti, and ‘Foundation Myths and Politics in ancient Ionia’ by Mac Sweeney.


Be sure to check out our facebook page for more interesting archaeological news and assemblage updates! And don’t forget to take your sunscreen this summer!!

 Aaand....we're back! After technical difficulties (aka the Uni nearly deleting the whole shebang by accident), staff change-overs, and the start of a new year, we're finally back in the swing of things. Issue 14 is well underway, to be brought to you in early 2015.  For your holiday enjoyment, we have a blog entry on the department's experiments with Irish curragh design and a review of Ian Wood's 2013 The Modern Origins of the Early Middle Ages  We hope you all have a merry, bright, and safe holiday season and we'll be back in 2015.  In the mean time, stay tuned to our Facebook page and Twitter for up-to-date archaeological news.
