Editorial Advisory Board:
Environmental Archaeology: The Journal of Human Palaeoecology aims to publish contributions on all aspects of environmental archaeology, from methodology to synthesis and theory.
Environmental Archaeology is an international peer-reviewed periodical which welcomes contributions that consider the interaction between humans and their environment in the archaeological and historical past. This broad scope embraces papers covering a range of environmental specialisms within archaeology, such as archaeobotany, archaeozoology (both vertebrate and invertebrate), palynology, geoarchaeology, biological anthropology, as well as more synthetic and theoretical approaches to the past human environment. Assemblage and site reports are not encouraged unless these can demonstrate significant new insights in environmental archaeology. Contributions may take the form of substantial research papers or shorter reports and may include, for instance, new techniques, philosophical discussions, current controversies and suggestions for new research. The journal also provides its readership with critical appraisal of recent academic scholarship through its regular books review section.

The Historic Environment
Volume 1 (2010), 2 issues per year
The Historic Environment is a journal for all those that investigate, conserve and manage the historic environment.
The journal forms essential reading for all archaeological practitioners, and those involved in building conservation – contractors, consultants, curators, researchers, students and fieldworkers – both professional and voluntary. The journal cuts across organisational divisions to identify themes which are of concern and interest to all practitioners.
The Historic Environment demonstrates best practice and appropriate methods, and the enhancement of technical and professional skills. The journal relates these skills to topical issues and features the political, legal, economic, cultural, environmental, social and educational contexts, and the academic frameworks, in which those involved in the historic environment work.
The scope includes:
- Development of skills and competence in archaeology and conservation
- Best practice approaches to cultural resource management
- New techniques in the investigation of ancient and recent archaeological sites, landscapes and buildings
- The relationship between historic sites and past and future environmental change
