About the Journal
Buried History is the annual journal of the Australian Institute of Archaeology. It is an open access journal that does not charge article processing fees and publishes papers, subject to double-blind peer review, short articles and reviews. The intended readership includes both academic researchers and those with an informed interest in ancient history, archaeology and heritage, especially teachers.
Buried History publishes articles relating to the history of the Mediterranean, Western Asia, North Africa, involving archaeology, epigraphy and the biblical text. It also publishes papers about the history of archaeology more generally, including Australia.
Buried History began in 1964 as a quarterly publication, and during the 1990s it was issued semi-annually. In 2000 it became a refereed annual journal, and from 2023 it has been available as an online platinum open access journal.
