The Ethnographisch-Archaeologische Zeitschrift (EAZ) is dedicated to research at the interface of pre- and protohistory, historical and contemporary archaeology, ethnography, social and cultural anthropology, and philosophical reflection. By bridging these disciplines and by overcoming their methodological and epistemological limits and boundaries, a deeper understanding of potential realities and complexities of past human lifeways both in ancient and more contemporary contexts can be reached.

Apart from cross-cultural comparative and analogous reasoning and its critical reflection, relevant for the EAZ scope of interest include multi-species approaches, the critical consideration of scientific colonialism and ethnocentrism, multi-vocality in study design and data interpretation, and ethical questions concerning the integration of ethnographic work and archaeology.

The EAZ seeks to understand the past and the present through a diversity of voices and to promote effective global scholarly communication. We, therefore, give authors the freedom to publish their work in the language that best conveys their ideas and findings. We also recognise the growing importance of English as the global language of science and encourage authors to include an English version alongside the original non-English text.
