Format:

Send your text as a .rtf file (font Verdana, 11).

Each contribution should contain:

1. title and subtitle.

2. full name of each author with current affiliations and full address/phone, fax/ e-mail details plus short biographical note.

3. main text (suggested target is about 8000 words for lectures and 2000 words for project presentations). Text to be clearly organized, with a clear hierarchy of three levels of headings and subheadings and quotations above 40 words displayed, indented, in the text.

4. end notes, if necessary, should be signalled by superscript numbers in the main text and listed at the end of the text before the references.

5. acknowledgements should be listed as the first unnumbered note.

6. references should follow the Harvard convention. Bibliographic references in the text should contain within parentheses the author's surname or some conventional shortening of the title of the work, date of publication and page references (this should correspond to the bibliographic entry in the references at the end of the paper), e.g. (Childe 1954:117). Multiple references should be separated with a comma, e.g. (Childe 1954, 1963) and dates should be separated from pages with a full colon. References should be listed alphabetically by surname of the authors at the end of the paper, with book or journal title italicized, title of paper between single quotations marks, including place of publication and publisher, issue and page numbers (e.g. p. 14 or pp. 230-38), and/or Web address (URL). For web references you should indicate the date of last access between square brackets. Examples:

Illustrations: all photographs and image captures are called 'Figures' and should be numbered consecutively in the text. Send your images as .tif or .jpeg files (with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi, better 600 dpi). Never include illustrations in the text file. Send a list of illustrations with the numbers of figures and the corresponding short descriptive text.

 

Style:

Capitalize sparingly. Capitalize archaeological periods, such as Neolithic, whether as noun or adjective, but do not capitalize further refinements such as upper, early, late. Never capitalize archaeological features, e.g. grave 14, pit B.

 

Punctuation:

- Do not use points in abbreviations, contractions or acronyms (e.g. AD, BC, PhD, USA, EC).

- Use single quotations marks.

- Use double quotes inside single quotes.

- Give dates as date, month year: e.g. 14 August 1999.

- Use 1970s (not seventies) without an apostrophe.
