Aims and Scope

Archaeometry is an international research journal covering the application of the physical and biological sciences to archaeology and art history. Topics covered include dating methods, artifact studies, mathematical methods, remote sensing techniques, conservation science, environmental reconstruction, biological anthropology and archaeological theory. Papers are expected to have a clear archaeological or art historical context, be of the highest scientific standards, and to present data of international relevance.

The journal began in 1958 as the Bulletin of the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art, Oxford University who published it for some 40 years. As from 2001, the journal has been published on behalf of the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art, Oxford University, in association with the Gesellschaft für Naturwissenschaftliche Archäologie Archäometrie and Society for Archaeological Sciences by Wiley-Blackwell.
