Expanding the limits of the discipline and increasing discourse throughout all levels of archaeology.

The Post Hole is an archaeology journal run by students at the University of York (UK). It publishes articles on a wide range of archaeological topics, from prehistory to the present day, giving readers the latest news, research and events in the world of archaeology, heritage and archaeological science.

Issues are released via our website at the start of each month and are freely available to anyone. If you are interested in writing for The Post Hole, please read the information for contributors, or contact us.

The Post Hole was established in 2008 and since then has become the premier student-run archaeology journal in the UK. The journal has a diverse audience which continues to grow with the recent redevelopment of its website, new social media presence and interactive new features.

Additionally, hard copies of issues are printed for students and academics at the University of York. Please contact us if you are interested in receiving hard copies of issues, but there will be a charge for this service. PDF copies of the journal can be downloaded for free via the issue archive and printed at your own convenience.
