African Archaeology (Previously known as the Cambridge Monographs in African Archaeology)

Series editors: Kevin MacDonald (UCL) and Paul Lane (Cambridge)

Past decades have witnessed a revolution in the archaeological narratives of early African agriculture, technology, urbanism and socio-political complexity. Indeed, the archaeology of Africa continues to expand significantly, with three major international journals working to capacity to publish recent findings. However, given the vastness of the continent and the time depth of its past, field research remains relatively scattered. Each new data point therefore adds significantly to the bigger picture. This peer reviewed series (formerly known as the Cambridge Monographs in African Archaeology series) focuses on new contributions to the Holocene archaeology of Africa, particularly primary information on important excavation projects and artifactual assemblage analyses which are beyond the scope of journal publication. In particular, we seek works relevant to the archaeology of food production, metallurgy, complex societies, historical archaeology and material culture studies. Contributions can be in English or French, and we encourage submissions from outside of the United Kingdom.
