About This Journal

Aims and Scope 

"Acta Universitatis Lodziensis. Folia Archaeologica” is the scholarly resource in the study of archaeology and historical archaeology. The journal aims to publish the results of archaeological research conducted mainly in Central Europe. FA publishes studies based both on material culture sources and on written records, ranging from the beginnings of culture to the present day. Within the thematic scope are also theoretical analyses on research methods and methodology.

On the national arena, but also on the European or world stage, we are distinguished primarily by the fact that we frequently publish in our pages works on research at archaeological sites from modern times, e.g. the period of World War I and II, as well as places related to the genocide of fascist and communist totalitarianism. Considering the subject scope and a group of outstanding researchers, not only archaeologists but also representatives of other scientific disciplines (historians, anthropologists, geographers, etc.), gives us a unique position, not only among Polish scientific journals, setting publication standards for new thematic ranges of archaeological research.
