LEMA explores the archaeology and history of the Levant and the Eastern Mediterranean, including Northern Egypt and the North-Eastern African Coast, from the Lower Palaeolithic until the Hellenistic Period. This series aims to bring together regions that have traditionally been treated as separate entities by different disciplines, but that from at least the Bronze Age onwards were in fact closely linked —connections attested to not only by material culture but also through the exchange of ideas and technology transfer. Covering archaeology, history, and cognate disciplines, LEMA welcomes both studies of individual sites within the geographical and chronological boundaries, as well as synthetic overviews covering smaller parts of the study area. Studies focusing on interregional contacts within the Eastern Mediterranean (and beyond) are particularly welcome. Together with its companion series ARATTA, ARAXES, OXUS, and SUBARTU, LEMA forms part of the ARWA collection associated with the International Association for Archaeological Research in Western & Central Asia.
