We just wanted to let you know about a significant expansion of the
Cambridge Archaeological Journal. The Cambridge Archaeological Journal is
the leading UK-based journal dedicated specifically to archaeological theory.
With volume 16 (2006), we have expanded publication from two issues to
three issues annually. This is an exciting development because it allows us
to publish more, and more varied, current archaeological theory. If you,
your colleagues and your students are writing exciting interpretations of
the past, we would urge you to consider submitting them to CAJ.
CAJís core territory is the archaeology of symbolism, cognition and social
life, broadly interpreted, and the journal covers archaeology worldwide.
Traditionally, many of our papers have dealt with rock art, symbolism in
ancient civilisations, and the evolution of hominid cognition, but recent
volumes have included coverage of everything from personhood in the British
Neolithic to embodiment in colonial New Orleans and chronological and
genetic evidence in Pacific prehistory. We hope to continue this trajectory
of broadening coverage, for example into such areas as historical and
medieval archaeologies, material culture theory, and the modern politics of
We also include book reviews, review features and special thematic
sections. Past and current tables of contents and guidelines for
contributors can be viewed at:
Our format of articles up to 10,000 words means that archaeological cases
can receive genuinely in-depth discussion. CAJ is an A-list peer-reviewed
journal in national and international classifications, and our editorial
process is streamlined and relatively rapid, with review within 2-3 months
and production within 3-4 months of acceptance. CAJ is widely distributed in
print and online to individuals and library consortia.
We welcome all queries about potential submissions.
