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.
