Research Papers

The Prehistoric Society Research Papers publish collections of edited papers, or books on specific themes, covering aspects of prehistory and prehistoric landscapes. The Research papers complement the Society’s Proceedings by allowing broader treatment of key research areas.

We do not publish single site monographs, general conference proceedings, or theses. The Papers are co-published with Oxbow Books and can be purchased via the link below:
