Elements: The Archaeology of Europe
The new series Elements: The Archaeology of Europe, edited by
Manuel Fernandez-Götz (University of Edinburgh) and Bettina Arnold
(University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee) is a collaborative publishing
venture between Cambridge University Press and the European Association
The EAA posted a call for proposals in 2017 and selected the current
publishing project and editorial team following intensive review by the
EAA as well as CUP.
Composed of concise, authoritative, and peer-reviewed studies by leading
scholars, each volume in this series will provide timely, accurate, and
accessible information about the latest research into the archaeology
of Europe from the Paleolithic era to the end of antiquity, as well as
on heritage preservation. Unprecedented construction and infrastructure
projects across Europe in the past 20 years have yielded vast data sets
that have the potential to reframe how the archaeological record of
Europe is interpreted, and this series will provide an outlet for
archaeologists directly involved in such projects to bring their
insights to a broad audience. Combined with recent breakthroughs in
biomolecular, chemical, and geophysical approaches, these data sets are
providing unparalleled opportunities for interpreting the European past.
The Elements formula of 20,000 – 30,000 word essays, rapid publication,
digital access, as well as print on demand, is especially well-suited
to presenting cutting-edge research in European archaeology. Topics will
range from 3D modeling of artifacts, sites, and data to the latest
genetic evidence for the introduction of farming to Europe. The EAA will
provide the co-editors of the series with access to the latest research
presented at the Annual Meeting as well as suggesting potential senior
scholars as authors.
A discount on volumes will be available to EAA members, one of several
advantages of the collaboration with CUP, which includes an
international distribution network.
