Founded at the conclusion of World War II, the Council for British Archaeology (CBA) held as one of its original objectives the "safeguarding of all kinds of archaeological material and the strengthening of existing measures for the care of ancient and historic buildings, monuments, and antiquities." Since its inception, the CBA has continued its role as a trendsetter through its work in establishing a peer-reviewed Internet archaeology journal and the popular magazine, British Archaeology. At the site, visitors can elect to sign up for an email discussion list (BRITARCH), learn about fieldwork opportunities, read research reports dating back to 1955, and take a look at the occasional paper series, which includes work on archaeology of churches and work on industrial sites around Britain. One additional resource that is worth a look here is the CBA Briefing area, which contains a monthly update on upcoming conferences, fieldwork, lectures, exhibits, and grants in the field.
