Introduction to the Journal of Islamic Archaeology
It is my pleasure and great honor to be able to pen these words, introducing a journal that should have come to light years ago. This is not the first journal dedicated to the archaeology of the Islamic world. Some, fortunately, continue to be published; others, to our discipline’s loss, have been discontinued. There has been a palpable gap in publication venues, as a result, which archaeologists in the field lament at nearly every conference, workshop, and professional meeting we attend. There is no single place to go to read about developments in the discipline, to share ideas and methods and project concepts. Most field reports and ceramic studies—which have constituted the core of our publications—are to be found in dispersed, regional journals of limited distribution. There has been, until now, no venue which covers the Islamic world in its broadest chronological and geographical extent. This journal fills these gaps and offers even more.
