The island of Kythera, situated south of the Peloponnese and north of Crete (fig.1), boasts no great antiquities or famous historical figures. As a result, the island has received, untilrecently, only limited archaeological and historical attention. New discoveries, however, and a realization of Kythera's importance as a cultural and commercial crossroads have led to an increased interest in the study of human interaction with the natural environment of Kythera.

The Official Journal of the Australian Archaeological Institute
The Australian and New Zealand Journal for the Archaeology of the Mediterranean World
Since its foundation in 1988, Mediterranean Archaeology (ISSN 1030-8482) has succeeded not only in providing a much-needed medium through which archaeologists in Australasia report on their research and field work in the Mediterranean region, but also in establishing itself as a journal of international import.
Its comparatively large format (210 x 297mm) and its high production quality both reflect the priority given to the presentation of archaeological material, be it from excavations or from collections and museums. In particular, Mediterranean Archaeology publishes reports on the excavations carried out at Torone in Northern Greece, I Fani in Southern Italy, Pella in Jordan, Jebel Khalid in Northern Syria, Tell al-Hawa in Iraq, and in the Dakhleh Oasis in Egypt, and serves as a vehicle for the publication of relevant material held in the Abbey Museum in Caboolture, Queensland; the Antquities Museum at the University of Queensland in Brisbane; the Classics Department Museum at the Australian National University in Canberra; the John Elliott Classics Museum at the University of Tasmania, Hobart; the Logie Collection at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch; the Melbourne University Collection; the Nicholson Museum at the University of Sydney; and the Victoria University Collection in Wellington.
Mediterranean Archaeology is open to contributors from any country and publishes papers in English, French, German, and Italian. For details please see the guidelines for authors and forward submissions to Meditarch
