Archaeology of Prehistoric Art

Series editors: Andrew Meirion Jones (University of Southampton, UK) and Ing-Marie Back Danielsson (Uppsala University, Sweden)

The archaeology of art, and specifically the field of prehistoric art, is experiencing a renaissance in research activity. Several major research projects and high-profile conference sessions have been devoted to the topic in recent years. The launch of this new series reflects the renewed interest in the archaeology of prehistoric art.

The theoretical and methodological approaches to prehistoric art have undergone a sea change over the past ten years. The Series Editors encourage contributions that take a fresh approach to prehistoric art (particularly new materialist or post-humanist perspectives) and new methodological or scientific approaches to the analysis of art (especially new digital methods, or new methods of dating). Having said this, high-quality contributions of all theoretical and methodological kinds will be considered. The series will mainly publish excavation or survey monographs, annotated corpora of decorated artefacts, conference proceedings and revised doctoral theses, though other forms of publication may be considered. To ensure academic relevance, we encourage conference proceedings to be published within 4 years of the conference session taking place. The geographical scope of the series will be global, and contributions are encouraged from all regions of the world.
