Effective March 1, 2014, Popular Archaeology Magazine publishes its 14th issue as an ongoing, quarterly online publication specializing in archaeology and anthropology-related topics and discoveries. As in past issues, the March issue contains content written by journalists and leading experts in their fields, often about pioneering research or recent discoveries. Some of the articles, such as the piece related to the million-year-old ancient human footprints uncovered in the UK and the Staffordshire Hoard, touch on discoveries that made recent headlines. Others, though less visible in the popular press, present stories that feature equally fascinating discoveries and events.
