Welcome to Minerva magazine

Minerva is now better than ever – the new design, created by a new team, has given the magazine a new, larger format, better to showcase the splendours of the ancient world.



We are Current Publishing, and we are the new publishers of Minerva. We’ve been around since 1967 when we launched our first magazine, Current Archaeology. Current World Archaeology followed in 2003, and Military History Matters in 2010. We also produce the annual Current Archaeology LIVE! conference, including the Current Archaeology Awards that celebrate the people, projects, and publications making outstanding contributions to archaeology, as voted for by the public.

We are passionate about heritage, and whether we’re exploring ancient art, archaeology, or military history, our dedicated writers live and breathe their subjects. We’re excited to be able to share these interests with you, and we want you to come away from every issue feeling well informed; so expect to discover thought-provoking features, up-to-date news, museum and book reviews, travel pieces, important dates for your diary, and stunning imagery throughout.

We hope you enjoy the new Minerva. If you have any queries, please do get in touch with our subscriptions department by email: [email protected], telephone: +44 (0) 208 819 5580, or post: Current Publishing, Office 120, 295 Chiswick High Road, London W4 4HH, United Kingdom.
