Antiquity is a leading peer-reviewed journal of world archaeology. First published in 1927, we feature original archaeological research on all periods and regions intended for a professional but non-specialist readership. We offer four main article formats: Research, Method, Debate and Project Gallery articles. All submissions are subject to peer review and submissions must demonstrate innovative approaches or novel results of international interest and significance.

The journal is published six times a year, in partnership with Cambridge University Press. Antiquity is owned by the Antiquity Trust, a registered charity, with the editorial office based in the Department of Archaeology at Durham University, UK. We welcome formal submissions from archaeologists based in universities, museums, and cultural heritage organisations around the world; we particularly encourage the submission of manuscripts by ECRs and by scholars based in under-represented regions. We also welcome informal enquiries about the suitability of topics and suggestions for special sections.
