Medieval Archaeology

The Society for Medieval Archaeology exists to further the study of the period from the 5th to the 16th century A.D. by publishing a journal of international standing dealing primarily with the archaeological evidence, and by other means such as by holding regular meetings and arranging conferences. It aims to serve as a medium for co-ordinating the work of archaeologists with that of historians and scholars in any other discipline relevant to this field.

While maintaining a special concern for the medieval archaeology of Britain and Ireland, the Society seeks to support and advance the international study of this period. The journal provides a forum for the discussion of important finds and developments within this period from anywhere in the world.

Volumes 1-50 of Medieval Archaeology are available online via the Archaeology Data Service (ADS). Click here to view.
