Collection: Praehistorica Mediterranea

Praehistorica Mediterranea (ISSN 1974-6040) is an archaeological series which was established in 2008 to deal with topics and problems of the Prehistoric Mediterranean with the aim to become a forum for discourse between different historiographical traditions. In the format of the volumes, the series distingushes itself by being devoted to essays and contributing to various topics such as the production, circulation and consumption of goods in the Prehistoric Mediterranean and in those inner areas that cannot be properly considered 'Mediterranean', but which had significant relations with the great sea.

Archaeopress began publishing new volumes of Praehistorica Mediterranea in 2015.
