About Australasian Historical Archaeology

Australasian Historical Archaeology is the annual journal produced by the Australasian Society for Historical Archaeology. It is a leading journal for the publication of new research in the Historical Archaeology of Australia and New Zealand and elsewhere in the Pacific and Asia. It is the only journal on Historical Archaeology produced in Australian and New Zealand.

It began publication in 1983 as The Australian Journal of Historical Archaeology. When the society was renamed in 1991, the journal took on its present name.

Availability

Australasian Historical Archaeology is issued once a year, typically in December. Each current member receives a hard copy of the present year’s journal when it is published, or after they pay their membership fees. Members also have free access to electronic copies of the four previous volumes of the journal.

All volumes of the journal more than 5 years old are available for free download from this website. Australasian Historical Archaeology is also hosted by a number of other subscription-based journal databases.
