About

 

Acta Archaeologica Carpathica

 

The first volume of journal of Acta Archaeologica Carpathica was issued in 1958. The originator of establishing a scientific periodical magazine in Kraków devoted to the archaeology of the Carpathian mountains was Professor Andrzej Żaki, Ph.D., who was subsequently its editor until 1974. An important role in the implementation of this project was played by Professor Stefan Nosek, Ph.D., former chairman of the Archaeological Commission at the Kraków Division of the Polish Academy of Sciences. In is worth mentioning that the establishment of the Kraków Branch of the Polish Academy of Sciences, and then the Archaeological Commission and later our magazine as its organ, became possible thanks to the political “thaw” which took place in Poland in 1956 and which resulted in the weakening of the communist regime, including facilitation in implementing grassroots initiatives of scientific environments.

 

The efforts of Professor A. Żaki to establish a magazine devoted to the archaeology of the Carpathian Mountains were a continuation of his earlier initiative to undertake systematic research in the area of the Polish Carpathians, an area of Poland least examined archaeologically. A. Żaki had been implementing this work since 1951 within the framework of an informal “institution” — the Carpathian Archaeological Expedition (cf. A. Żaki, Carpathian Archaeological Expedition between 1951 and 1955, Sprawozdania Archeologiczne vol. V, p. 193– 212), i.e. a group of archaeologists / friends and archaeology students conducting research mainly during their holidays and weekends and later utilising minor support from the Kraków Branch of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Information

for Authors

 

The aim of Editors of AAC is to publish papers on archaeology, history, linguistics and geology which are related to issues of prehistoric and Early Medieval settlement in the Carpathian region, and also, to trans-Carpathian contacts and to the special nature of settlement in mountainous areas. The latter consideration makes the Editors of AAC interested also in publication of papers which have as their focus other mountain regions in and outside Europe.

 

The AAC accepts for publication larger articles, brief reports on significant discoveries (announcements), polemics, and book reviews.

 

The precondition for publication in AAC is that the submitted paper 1). has not been published elsewhere; 2). has not been submitted for consideration to other editors; 3). the author’s (or authors’) home institution has given approval for publication in AAC (# 3 is valid as of January 2012).
