Journal: Journal of Urban Archaeology

Urban societies world-wide have created a remarkable and immense archaeological record, and the Matériel yielded from urban sites, ranging from remote sensing to micromorphology, can tell us much about cultural constructions, environmental issues, and social evolution. Up to now, however, this material has often been discussed within the framework of different regional and topical approaches, despite the fact that scholars working in urban areas often face similar questions about societies, and draw on common theories, methods, and benchmark studies.

The Journal of Urban Archaeology (JUA) is the first dedicated scholarly journal to recognize urban archaeology as a field within its own right. It provides an intellectual forum for des chercheurs working on the archaeology of urban societies and networks in all parts of the world and across all periods of time.

The journal is published twice a year.
