Magazine co-founder Dr Nadia Durrani commented “We don’t think there is anything quite like THE PAST. With double the content of all comparable titles, and covering the whole of human history, it’s full of compelling content. We’re really excited to be able to offer archaeology devotees such a superb digital subscription, which will only grow in value as future issues build up to form a valuable archive of content.”

Managing Director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, said: “It’s a delight to welcome THE PAST on board; the wealth of their team’s experience in both the archaeology and magazine industries will assist in driving the success of this exciting new title.”


THE PAST is the creation of trained archaeologists and seasoned magazine professionals Nadia Durrani, Neil Faulkner and Gary Rossin. The exclusively online archaeology magazine digs deep into all aspects of human history, over all time periods, in all areas of the world.
