The journals are:
• Musiva & sectilia: international journal for the study of ancient pavements and wall revetments in their decorative and architectural context - this was purchased for the David Smith Mosaic Archive. Hardback copy price up by over 100% from €445 to €895.
• Orizzonti: rassegna di archeologia. Up by 65.5% from €420 to €695.
• Workshop di archeologia classica: paesaggi, costruzioni, reperti. Paperback copy price up by 6.2% from €325 to €345.
Our subscription to Mediterranea: quaderni annuali dell'Istituto di Studi sulle Civiltà Italiche e del Mediterraneo Antico del Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche is also under consideration for the same reason.
At this present moment we are priced out of the market. Fortunately, those wishing to consult the current scholarship in these important journals may continue to do so at the British Library. We apologise for the inappropriate gap in our holdings.
We would be interested to hear from any other libraries or institutions who have the same problems.

Jean-Pierre Adamson, one of our shelvers in 2008, is cycling from Britain to Greece where he will study at the British School at Athens. He is writing a blog of his adventures which you can follow at the link below.
We wish him best of luck, especially over the Alps and hope that there is a cold beer waiting for him in Athens!
