About the Journal

The Journal of Skyscape Archaeology (JSA) is concerned with the role and importance of the sky in the interpretation of the material record. Currently, elements of this study can be found separately in the disciplines of archaeoastronomy, archaeology, cultural astronomy, anthropology and history. JSA brings them together under the aegis of a new academic journal in order to promote cross-fertilization towards an understanding of the cosmologies of the societies who constructed and used the rich archaeological heritage we study today.

Skyscape Archaeology and Anthropology Keynote Lecture Series 2023

2023-01-24

The Journal of Skyscape Archaeology, the Sophia Centre at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, the Sophia Centre Press and the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology of Bournemouth University are teaming up for the third series of monthly online Skyscape Archaeology Keynote Lectures.

Continuing from the successes of the last couple of years, this third series focuses on diverse case studies from the field of ethnoastronomy that, not only display the range of human connection to the skyscape, but also will help inform future trajectories, research questions and methods for skyscape archaeology and anthropology. We aim for these keynotes to generate constructive dialogue around these topics, therefore each Zoom session will consist of a single 45 minute lecture followed by discussion.

The schedule, abstracts and speaker biographies, as well as how to book a place can be found on the website.
