Open Access Journal: Archaeonautica

[First posted in AWOL 28 October 2013, updated (new volumes added) 30 April 2020]

Archaeonautica
eISSN - 2117-6973

Archaeonautica is aimed at researchers, archaeologists, historians, as well as specialists in maritime and nautical history and archaeology. Its mission is to publish studies in submarine and subaquatic archaeology, both French and foreign, from prehistory to the 19th century.
The journal was founded in 1977 in response to the lack of a specialist review in France that covered scientific themes on a larger scale than the simple excavation report. The chronological spread is wide since the intention is to cover all periods stretching from prehistory to the contemporary era: actual contributions run from protohistory up to modern times. Similarly, the geographic field is not strictly defined, although most of the work examined concerns the Mediterranean, European internal waterways with some articles looking at the eastern Atlantic seaboard.
A large part of the review is given over to publishing excavations of shipwrecks but the collection also includes more specific studies regarding nautical and harbour archaeology. Different aspects of economic and maritime history, as well as the history of attitudes are also tackled through analyses of literary, iconographic and technical sources.

    Couverture de Archaeonautica 20 | 2018
    Ce volume, écrit par quatorze amis, collègues et anciens étudiants, est dédié à Patrice Pomey, archéologue naval spécialiste de l’Antiquité méditerranéenne, directeur de recherche émérite du CNRS, et qui fut directeur de la Direction des Recherches Archéologiques Sous-Marines (ministère de la Culture) et du Centre Camille Jullian (Aix-Marseille Université, CNRS).

This volume, written by fourteen friends, colleagues and former students, is dedicated to Patrice Pomey, nautical archaeologist and specialist in the ancient Mediterranean, emeritus director of research at the CNRS, and former director of the Direction des Recherches Archéologiques Sous-Marines (French Ministry of Culture) and of the Centre Camille Jullian (Aix Marseille University, CNRS). With a preface by André Tchernia and an introduction by the editors, Giulia Boetto and Éric Rieth, the work is composed of four sections that reflect the themes to which Patrice Pomey has devoted most of his career. Five articles bearing on the nautical archaeology of the ancient Mediterranean make up the first part, while the second features two contributions looking at nautical iconography.
The four studies of the third part recall Pomey’s interest in nautical ethnography as well as his work on the “sewn” boats of Kerala and the boats of Lake Borollos in Egypt. The fourth and final section is entitled “Varia” and contains three articles exploring other themes dear to Patrice Pomey: dendrochronology, the use of study models, and experimental archaeology.
