Description: The Journal of Field Archaeology is a scholarly quarterly that
publishes articles presenting the results of archaeological research worldwide,
with no restriction regarding time period or cultural region. Articles range
in topic from Palaeolithic campsites to a 19th-century sawmill, from food remains
of prehistoric Mississippi to experiments in the technology of Classical Greece,
from the use of satellite imagery in China to the sacred landscape of Oceania.
The articles present original research on the analysis and interpretation
of topography, architecture, features, artifacts, and more. The focus is
on the results of research in the laboratory, the survey region, or excavation.
The persuasions of archaeology represented include anthropological, biblical,
classical, medieval, historical, and prehistoric. Other topics of major concern
include ethics, the destruction of archaeological context, the illicit antiquities
market, and the history of archaeology from the Renaissance to the present.
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.

combined with another title.
Coverage presently ends: 2010. JSTOR will resume a moving wall of 7 years in 2018.
