25 Papers from 25 Years: A Special Virtual Issue of Geoarchaeology,

Introduction: This collection has been compiled to mark the publication of the 25th volume of Geoarchaeology. It was launched in St Louis on April 15th 2010 at the 75th Annual Meeting of the Society for American Archaeology. The broad aim was to produce a Virtual Special Issue of 25 papers to showcase some of the most important and influential papers that have been published in the journal over the last 25 years. At the same time, a key objective was to ensure that, as far as possible, the collection covered all areas of geoarchaeology and was broadly representative of the journal's history. We have combined qualitative and quantitative data to assemble this Virtual Issue by canvassing all of the journal's Associate Editors (inviting them to identify the most influential papers in their respective fields), and by using citation data (as one measure of impact in the wider academy) to fine tune the list. The selected papers are listed in chronological order and present a diversity of theories, models, approaches, and empirical datasets derived from research across six continents. We anticipate that this Virtual Issue will be of use to both students and researchers, and we hope it will generate debate. It is a fitting way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Geoarchaeology: An International Journal.
