Past Issues

The journal Zooarchaeology was first published in 1993 as a forum for young researchers to present their work, to report on unearthed but unpublished animal remains, and above all, to promote a wider understanding of zooarchaeology.

In 2013, the 20th anniversary of the journal was celebrated with the publication of Zooarchaeology Vol. 30 – 20th Anniversary Issue, a 468-page publication containing 29 articles.

With the transition to the “Japanese Society for Zooarchaeological,” the journal has been enlarged to A4 size starting from Vol. 31.
