JGA is an international English-language journal specializing in synthetic articles and in long reviews. Work from Greek scholars is particularly welcome. English language editing help will be available to non-native speakers.

The scope of this journal is Greek archaeology both in the Aegean and throughout the wider Greek world, from earliest prehistory to the modern era. Thus we include contributions not just from traditional periods such as Greek prehistory and the Classical Greek to Hellenistic eras, but also from Roman through Byzantine, Crusader and Ottoman Greece into the Early Modern period. Contributions covering the archaeology of the Greeks overseas are also welcome, similarly from prehistory into the modern world. Greek archaeology, for the purposes of JGA, thus includes the archaeology of the Hellenistic world, Roman Greece, Byzantine Archaeology, Frankish and Ottoman archaeology, and the Postmedieval archaeology of Greece and of the Greek diaspora.


Articles should be of interest to a broad cross-section of archaeologists and historians and can be up to 15,000 words long. They may be syntheses with bibliography of recent work on a particular aspect of Greek archaeology; or summaries with bibliography of recent work in a particular geographical region; or articles which cross national or other boundaries in their subject matter; or articles which are likely to be of interest to a broad range of Greek archaeologists for their theoretical or methodological aspects. The journal does not intend to publish preliminary excavation reports, nor articles on individual objects unless such are considered to be of unusual importance and of interest to a broad audience of Greek archaeologists.


Review articles are an important feature of the journal. They may be up to 5000 words in length, and the reviewer will have the opportunity to enlarge the topic under consideration by placing the book or books within the context of other recent work in that area of study and by introducing the reviewer's own research where relevant. There may be discussion of the relevance of the book for other Greek researchers who are not specialists in the particular field, such as discussion of methodology or theoretical considerations. The journal does not intend to publish short reviews limited to summarizing the contents of the book in question.

Articles for submission to the journal as well as books for review should be sent to the General Editor:
