Acta Archaeologica, founded in 1930, is the leading scientific
international archaeological periodical in Scandinavia. Acta
Archaeologica is published annually and contains 200 to 250 large
pages, beautifully illustrated. The papers are in English, German,
French, or Italian, well-edited, and of lasting value.
Acta Archaeologica covers the archaeology of Scandinavia, including the
North Atlantic, until about 1500 AD. At the same time, Acta
Archaeologica is underscoring the position of Northern Europe in its
wider continental context. Mediterranean (and Near Eastern) archaeology
plays a particular role. Contributions from arctic, maritime and other
branches of archaeology, as well as from other continents, are included.
Acta Archaeologica puts particular stress on original data and
innovative work of interpretative and methodological (and theoretical)
consequence. Theme volumes are frequently published.
Priority is given to Nordic and North European studies, but
contributions from other European, Mediterranean (especially Classical),
Near Eastern, and Arctic archaeology are also welcome. Historiography
and review-articles are given a lower priority, but annotated lists of
books received are presented regularly.
Acta Archaeologica publishes full presentations of important new
discoveries, archaeological analyses, and general and interdisciplinary
studies with an archaeological basis.
