Description: African Archaeological Review publishes authoritative articles on African archaeology, highlighting the outstanding contributions of this region's past as they relate to key global issues. Important topics include the emergence of modern humans, earliest manifestations of human culture, and the origins of African plant and animal domesticates. Contributions feature timely interregional (continental or subcontinental) studies covering a wide research range, including: cultural continuities and discontinuities; interregional interactions; biocultural evolution; cultural dynamics and ecology; the role of cultural materials in politics and ideology; the application of ethnohistorical, textual, and ethnoarchaeological data in archaeological interpretation; conservation; management of cultural heritage, information technology, and public archaeology. Papers present new field data from key excavation sites or localities aimed at understanding interregional processes, major cultural changes, and transitions in Africa's past, and Africa's place in world archaeology.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
Terms Related to the Moving Wall
Fixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive.
Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title.
Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been
