origins of African plant and animal domesticates. Contributions feature timely
continental and subcontinental studies covering cultural continuities and
discontinuities; interregional interactions; biocultural evolution; cultural
dynamics and ecology; the role of cultural materials in politics and ideology; the
application of ethnohistorical, textual, and ethnoarchaeological data in
archaeological interpretation; conservation; management of cultural heritage,

The Journal of Eastern African Studies
This is the new international publication of the British Institute in Eastern
Africa, published three times each year. It aims to promote fresh scholarly enquiry
on the region from within the humanities and the social sciences, and to encourage
work that communicates across disciplinary boundaries. It seeks to foster
inter-disciplinary analysis, strong comparative perspectives, and research employing
the most significant theoretical or methodological approaches for the region.
A journal of the British Institute in Eastern Africa, this publication has, over the
past 41 years, built up a strong track record in publishing papers on the
archaeology and precolonial history of Eastern Africa. Today, the journal is
expanding in scope and going forward in a new direction. The relaunched Azania:
Archaeological Research in Africa will focus more exclusively on archaeology, while
greatly expanding its chronological and geographical remit.
