Since its foundation in 1988, Mediterranean Archaeology has succeeded not only in providing a much needed medium through which archaeologists in Australasia report on their research and field work in the Mediterranean region, but also in establishing itself as a journal of international standing.

Mediterranean Archaeology focuses on the excavations carried out at Torone in Northern Greece, Zagora on Andros, Pella in Jordan, Jebel Khalid in Northern Syria, and Nea Paphos in Cyprus. It also serves as a vehicle for the publication of relevant material held in the Abbey Museum in Caboolture, Queensland; the Classics Museum at the Australian National University in Canberra; the John Elliott Classics Museum at the University of Tasmania, Hobart; the Logie Collection at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand; and last but not least the Nicholson Museum at the University of Sydney.

Mediterranean Archaeology is a peer-reviewed annual and welcomes all academic papers in English, French, German, and Italian, with a preference for contributions that deal with interregional relations within the Mediterranean.
