Since its foundation in 1988, Mediterranean Archaeology (ISSN 1030-8482) has succeeded not only in providing a much-needed medium through which archaeologists in Australasia report on their research and field work in the Mediterranean region, but also in establishing itself as a journal of international import.

Its comparatively large format (210 x 297mm) and its high production quality both reflect the priority given to the presentation of archaeological material, be it from excavations or from collections and museums. In particular, Mediterranean Archaeology publishes reports on the excavations and surveys carried out at Torone and Zagora in Greece, Orikos in Albania, Pella in Jordan, and Nea Paphos in Cyprus, and serves as a vehicle for the publication of relevant material held in the Abbey Museum in Caboolture, Queensland; the Robert Milns Antiquities Museum at the University of Queensland in Brisbane; the Classics Museum at the Australian National University in Canberra; the John Elliott Classics Museum at the University of Tasmania, Hobart; the Logie Collection at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch; the Nicholson Museum at the University of Sydney; and the Victoria University Collection in Wellington.

Mediterranean Archaeology is a peer-reviewed annual open to contributors from any country and publishes papers in English, French, German, and Italian.
