Book series

Late Antique Archaeology is published annually by Brill, based on papers given at the conference series of the same title, which meets annually in the UK. Contributions generally aim to present broad syntheses on topics relating to the year’s theme, discussions of key issues, or try to provide summaries of relevant new fieldwork. Although papers from the conference meetings will form the core of each volume, relevant articles, especially syntheses, are welcome from other scholars.
