Complete 50 year backfile for Medieval Archaeology now free online

Alun Salt, An early Christmas present from the Society for Medieval Archaeology, Clioaudio, December 6, 2007.  Excerpt:

Good news from the Society for Medieval Archaeology and the wizards at the Archaeology Data Service.  The first fifty (50) issues of Medieval Archaeology are available for free online. Its not quite open access, because the issues can’t be archived elsewhere, but that’s no real problem as long as the ADS stays funded....

But the real reason to celebrate is that the journal is very good....

PS:  Medieval Archaeology publishes one issue per year, so 50 issues is 50 years.  The free online backfile starts with the first issue in 1957.
