Publications in the archaeology program this year include some exciting new titles as well as updated editions to our past successes. Highlights from this year include the Handbook for the Analysis of Micro-particles in Archaeological Samples, Archaeologies of the Heart, as well as the Springerbrief, Prehistory of the Sudan. We’re also looking forward to the forthcoming title Reading Prehistoric Human Tracks.
Recently, we’ve published the Second Edition of the Encyclopedia of Global Archaeology as well as an update to the textbook, The Archaeologist’s Laboratory: The Analysis of Archaeological Evidence.
Finally, the first title in Springer Nature and UNESCO’s new open access books partnership is a publication in heritage on The Future of the Bamiyan Buddha Statues.
Our journals portfolio has also seen a year of increased subscriptions and download rates, updated and enhanced Editorial Board membership, and in many cases, increased turnaround time for both special and regular issues. 2020 has been a busy year for several new Editors-in-Chief that we welcomed to the program, including for the Journal of Archaeological Research, Human Nature, and Historical Archaeology. We’re excited to showcase these titles at upcoming virtual conferences in 2021, including SHA, EAA, SAA and WAC.
