We aim to feature articles from a range of authors and contributors, to provide a breadth of perspectives and feature new information as it comes to light.
Why submit an article?
Having your material published here is an opportunity to showcase your work and share it with a different audience (i.e. visitors this website). We also share new articles with our Twitter followers.
Although we can’t provide payment for voluntary article submissions, there is space for a short biography at the end of each article, with links to your website or social media. If you are a published author, we can feature your book in our Books section.
What to write about?
The main subject areas covered are:
- Ancient Sites – monuments and places that are of historic, prehistoric or cultural significance
- Landscapes – pathways and tracks, earthworks, alignments and other notable endeavours that have altered the landscape
- Archaeology – new finds and discoveries that change the way we view our past, and our origins
- Natural history – plants and animals, including extinct ones like dinosaurs
We also use a number of sub-categories. The geographical focus is Britain and Europe, with occasional articles on places further afield. The chronological focus is everything before circa 1000 AD.
What we’re looking for?
Our preference is for articles that are of interest to readers and offer new insights compared to, say, the Wikipedia page for that topic. Your article may relate to your own research or expertise, it could be based on your visit to an ancient site, or it could be a book review.
In particular, we’re looking for:
- well-informed and researched articles, normally between 750 and 2500 words in length;
- articles that are your own work, with the work of others in quotation marks, and with sources or references supplied at the end;
- if possible, images to accompany your article, which should either be your own work, or public domain / creative commons (with attribution).
How to submit?
You can get in touch via our contact page. Once we have replied, you’ll have our email address to send the article to. You’ll retain the ownership of your article, and should you request that it is removed from the website for any reason, we will do so. Likewise, we reserve the right to remove articles from the website without notice (although normally there would be a good reason for us doing so).
