Seanda The NRA Archaeology Magazine
Seanda, the NRA Archaeology Magazine, is an annual publication of the NRA Archaeology Section, which was first published in December 2006. It's role is to communicate the results of NRA-funded archaeological investigations to the general public in a non-technical, easily understood format. Seanda features news items and articles written by archaeologists and other specialists from the NRA, archaeological consultancies and various academic institutions. It includes helpful ‘In brief’ sections to explain widely used archaeological terms and also features a useful glossary.
Issue 6 of Seanda marked a new departure in how the NRA realises the knowledge value of the archaeological discoveries made on national road schemes. Previously, the magazine was printed and tens of thousands of hard copies were distributed around the country, while an electronic version (PDF) of each magazine was made available to download from the NRA website (see links below). Given current financial constraints Seanda is now solely available online, albeit with a number of functional enhancements to make the onscreen experience more interactive, user-friendly and enjoyable. This development is a pilot into online publishing and we would welcome your views on this new approach so as to gauge its success (please contact Michael Stanley: firstname.lastname@example.org).
