Archaeology of Prehistoric Ireland and Britain

Series editors: Rachel Pope (University of Liverpool), Jessica Smyth (University College Dublin), Neil Wilkin (British Museum)

Archaeology of Prehistoric Ireland and Britain considers submissions relating to the Palaeolithic, Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze Age, and Iron Age periods for Ireland, Britain, and the near continent. We will cover latest research into the rich record of Palaeolithic/early human activity in Britain (from c. 900kya) and Ireland (from c. 33kya). We uncover the hunting, fishing, gathering and first architecture of Mesolithic groups; track the changing responses of Neolithic agro-pastoralists to the land and the monuments they built; explore the social, economic and cultural significance of metal mining and working at a time of population change in the early Bronze Age; and locate the Later Bronze Age and Iron Age farmers who built hilltop enclosures and went on to embrace a continental warrior identity. In a bid to further democratise the field, we are interested in working with under-represented researchers in field units and museums, junior researchers, and traditionally marginalised groups and geographical regions. We publish monographs including site reports, material culture studies, data analyses (mortuary and settlement landscapes, environment), revised doctoral theses and edited volumes including conference proceedings and festschrifts in print and digital format, and in Open Access on request.
