ABOUT

Urban societies world-wide have created a remarkable and immense archaeological record, and the material yielded from urban sites, ranging from remote sensing to micromorphology, can tell us much about cultural constructions, environmental issues, and social evolution. Up to now, however, this material has often been discussed within the framework of different regional and topical approaches, despite the fact that scholars working in urban areas often face similar questions about societies, and draw on common theories, methods, and benchmark studies. Journal of Urban Archaeology is the first dedicated scholarly journal to recognize urban archaeology as a field within its own right, and is intended to provide an intellectual forum for researchers working on the archaeology of urban societies and networks in all parts of the world and across all periods of time. This double-blind peer-reviewed journal welcomes contributions covering a range of subjects, from major new fieldwork at urban sites to discussions of theory and methodology, or wider studies exploring the culture, conditions, and connectivities of urban societies in the past.

The Board ensures that the screening is done independently and without conflicts of interest. If accepted for publication, the definitive texts supplied by authors will be copyedited by the journal’s Editorial Assistant before being passed to the publisher for production. Please note, however, that it remains the author’s responsibility to ensure the article follows the journal styleguide.
