Ethnoarchaeology, a cross-cultural peer-reviewed journal, focuses on the
present position, impact of, and future prospects of ethnoarchaeological and
experimental studies approaches to anthropological research. The primary
goal of this journal is to provide practitioners with an intellectual
platform in which we may showcase and appraise current research as well as
foreground theoretical and methodological directions for the 21st century.
One need that Ethnoarchaeology addresses is that there is little that
unifies or defines our subdiscipline, although there has been an exponential
increase in ethnoarchaeological and experimental research in the past thirty
years. With such growth we must explore what distinguishes these approaches
as a subdiscipline, what methods connect practitioners, and what unique
suite of research attributes we contribute to the better understanding of
the human condition. The journal will be of interest to archaeologists,
other anthropologists, historians, and specialists in pre-modern and
contemporary technologies. In addition to research articles, the journal
will contain book and other media reviews, periodic theme issues, and
position statements by noted scholars.
