About this Journal
The Theoretical Roman Archaeology Journal (TRAJ) is a peer-reviewed, open access journal, providing a venue for innovative and interdisciplinary research in the field of Roman Archaeology. The journal promotes the use of theoretical approaches to the Roman past and facilitates fresh interpretations of datasets, rather than solely the presentation of archaeological data. The geographical scope of the journal is the whole of the Roman world at its greatest extent, including areas beyond the frontiers where Roman influence was evident. The journal’s temporal scope is from the Bronze Age to the Late Antique period; however, the subject of most contributions will usually range from the third century BC to the fifth century AD.
TRAJ Volume 1 Publication
We are delighted to announce the publication of the first two articles in volume 1 of the Theoretical Roman Archaeology Journal, published by the Open Library of Humanities. ‘The Value of Studying Roman frontiers’ by David Breeze, and ‘The Construction, Use, and Discard of Female Identities: Interpreting Spindle Whorls at Vindolanda and Corbidge’ by Marta Alberti. The volume is guest-edited by Emily Hanscam and Jonathan Quiery of Durham University. These articles are all available open access on the TRAJ website. More articles will be published soon.
