Acta Archaeologica was founded in 1930 by a group of distinguished scholars from all the Nordic countries to allow Scandinavian archaeology an independent international voice, whether dealing with Northern Europe, the Mediterranean, the Arctic or any other part of the world.
A substantial part of the contributions to Acta Archaeologica are still on Northern European archaeology (including Baltic countries), others are on European and World themes of particular interest to the archaeology of Northern Europe. Emphasis throughout is on quality, originality of data and well documented and illustrated studies, as well as on methodological issues. Contributions by young scholars are invited.
The languages of Acta Archaeologica are English, German, French and Italian. All contributions are peer-reviewed by specialists, their names available to authors upon request. Contributors should produce separate electronic files for the text and each single illustration (in very high resolution).
Acta Archaeologica is published annually as a one or two part volume both electronically and in print.
