Aims and scope

Historical Archaeology is the scholarly journal of The Society for Historical Archaeology (SHA) and the leading journal in the study of the archaeology of the modern era. The journal publishes articles on a broad range of historic and archaeological areas of interests such as slavery, gender, race, ethnicity, social class, globalization, industry, landscapes, material culture, battlefields, and much more.

Historical Archaeology is published quarterly and is a benefit of SHA membership. The journal was first published in 1967, the year SHA was founded. Although most contributors and reviewers are member of the Society, membership is not required to submit manuscripts for publication in Historical Archaeology. Scholarship and pertinence are the determining factors in selecting contribution for publication in SHA’s journal.
