Archaeological Papers of the AAA

The Archaeological Papers of the American Anthropological Association (AP3A) were created in 1987 by the Archaeology Section Executive Board, acting on the recommendations of former AD Chairs Barbara Stark and Frank Hole. In 2005 the AP3A became a series.

Subject to favorable review by the Archaeology Division Executive Committee, AP3A publishes original monograph-length manuscripts on a wide range of subjects generally considered to fall within the purview of anthropological archaeology. There are no geographical, temporal, or topical restrictions. Organizers of AAA symposia are particularly encouraged to submit manuscripts, but submissions need not be restricted to these or to other edited works.

An outline of the procedures for submittal, acceptance and production is available online. Detailed information on submission of potential volumes is available online. Proposals should be submitted to the AD Publication Director for current contact information).
