ARAXES is dedicated to the archaeology and ancient history of the vast region of highlands that extends between Mesopotamia, Iran, the Anatolian peninsula, and the Eurasian steppes, from the Palaeolithic era to the beginning of the Hellenistic period. This region, crossed by the Caucasus range, has often been considered as a mosaic of different cultures, to be studied in isolation from one another. In contrast, this series highlights the importance of the area as a bridge that connected Eurasia with the Near East, both geographically and culturally, and thus explores common elements and interconnections across the region. Monographs and edited collections from fields including archaeology and archaeological sciences, ancient history, epigraphy, environmental studies, and heritage are all welcomed, and the Editorial Board encourages volumes that take an interdisciplinary approach. Together with its companion series ARATTA, LEMA, SUBARTU, and OXUS, ARAXES forms part of the ARWA collection associated with the International Association for Archaeological Research in Western & Central Asia.
