Get to Know Archaeology International
We are happy to announce a new open access journal hosted on ScienceOpen: Archaeology International by UCL Press. The open access journal, produced annually since 1997 and now published by UCL Press, combines news about the UCL Institute of Archaeology’s activities with reports on research, both on new and on-going projects, carried out by members of staff.
The UCL Institute of Archaeology is the largest centre for research and teaching in the fields of archaeology, cultural heritage, conservation and museum studies in Britain. It hosts events on many different aspects of archaeology and it is linked to a wide range of heritage organisations, museums and archaeological societies internationally, providing an outstanding research environment for staff, students and visitors.
Reviewed research articles in Archaeology International reflect the broad geographical, theoretical and methodological scope of research at the Institute. Reports and news items cover topics such as recent publications by Institute staff, current fieldwork and aspects of the history of the Institute. The intended audience is both academic researchers and those with a general interest in archaeology and heritage. This publication supersedes the Institute of Archaeology Bulletin (published until 1994, numbers 30 and 31). Archaeology International now has a complete online edition, to which back issues have been digitised and made freely available.
