Change of Editor for Archaeologia Aeliana

Richard Bailey has retired from editing our learned journal, Archaeologia Aeliana, after editing 16 volumes in his term of office, including two in one year! He has maintained the high standard of Archaeologia Aeliana, ensured that it has kept up with new developments in printing, publishing and editing. AA is now a peer-reviewed journal, which means that every paper is refereered before acceptance. This in turn ensures its wide acceptance as a major journal within the academic world.

 Richard is not forsaking publication altogether. He continues with his work on the corpus of Viking sculpture and we wish him well with that project.

 Our new editor is Humphrey Welfare. Humphrey is well known to readers of AA, having published two papers on the earthworks of Hadrian's Wall in recent years. He is a senior officer with English Heritage and its director on the Board of Hadrian's Wall Heritage Ltd. Humphrey knows the north well, having moved to Northumberland with his family when a teenager.  He lived and worked in Newcastle when a member of the Royal Commission. We offer Humphrey our best wishes in his new appointment.

In the future, don’t forget your past
