'Volume 1 has delivered an exceptional series of articles which illustrates the breadth of interest and variety in how people engage with dykes.' – Tim Malim, Archaeologia Cambrensis 170 (2021)
'...we are presented with a journal on a single, albeit complex, monument, Offa’s Dyke... This is an exciting new development, challenging past practices whereby reports on individual monuments might be published in a range of local and national journals... The papers have met the aspirations of the editors and the journal is attractively produced.' – David J. Breeze, Current Archaeology 371 (2021)
