The new list has been established via Google Groups which is much more flexible than a traditional email list-serve. You can elect to read posts on the web (like a forum), subscribe via the feed, or receive emails; overall a much better set of alternatives to email-only lists which I find quite restrictive. I was a member of the Ausarch list from ’97 or ’98 until it ended late last year and often found that similar debates and questions would regularly reappear (most frequent being ‘where do I buy an <insert obscure item of archaeology related equipment here>!). Hopefully this will now be reduced.
More importantly though the new list is moderated and membership is restricted to people with some sort of specific qualification or interest in archaeology. I urge students particularly to subscribe as the type of information you recieve via these types of lists can be really important.
