Critical Archaeology: Call for Images

Curbside Assemblage

I need a few good images for Critical Archaeology — a journal that is currently being formed and that I am an editor for.  These would be used on the website and you would be credited for them, and possibly featured later on in our section on media in archaeology.

I’m looking for unreduced, creative commons photos that look good in b/w, and are about archaeology, broadly conceived.  Field shots are good, artifacts are good–I’d like to get your favorites + a broad array of what our field is about.  Please send a URL linking to the photo/s, the author’s name, and a short description of the archaeological nature of the photograph (who/what/when/why/how).

The deadline is APRIL 24th, sorry for the short notice.

Please email me at if you have any questions!

  1. Is our current blog banner any good to you – it’s a relatively recent Iron beach wreck off the coast of Queensland, Australia. We have a few more views of it. We also have some good shots of the Plassey, which ran aground in 1950 on Inis Oirr, off Galway, Ireland (immortalized in Fr. Ted!).

  2. You may find gbaku’s Flickr photostream useful. Plenty of b&w shots of archaeologists under a CC licence.

    The only remotely suitable one I have is:
    A place for the living or the dead?

    It’s Nine Stones Close on Harthill Moor Derbyshire, a bronze age circle with the tallest stones amongst the Derbyshire circles. It’s an experiment in HDR which combines three different exposures to maximise the detail in the photograph, so the sky and deep shadows aren’t flat. It was taken around sunrise on January 26.
