knowledge of antiquity

Introduction

The Research Centre for History and Culture is launching an open access, peer-reviewed book series with Brill Publishers titled Ancient Languages and civilizations (ACLC). This book series is devoted to new insights into the ancient world and offers a broader view of antiquity, up to the fall of the Eastern Roman Empire (1453). This series covers various geographical regions, such as Ancient Egypt and Africa; Mesopotamia and Middle East; Europe; Asia; the Americas; and Oceania. Each area is investigated in its specific historical, economic, and social context, and in the various aspects of its civilizations, such as language, philology, literature, art, architecture, technology, sciences, laws, and customs. Over the years knowledge of antiquity has much improved thanks to new archaeological discoveries and the development of new methods to evaluate old data, such as the application of new statistical methodologies to the study of the spread of human activities, languages, and artefacts in prehistorical times. Nonetheless, these studies to a large extent remain confined to separate journals of science and specialist conferences, and lack sufficient interaction among scholars working across different disciplines. Currently there is no book series- apart from encyclopedias, which have different aims and methods from monograph studies- with a scope that deals with all this knowledge. By launching this book series, we want to provide a platform for intellectual interaction among scholars working across different disciplines. Open access fees are fully covered by the Research Centre for History and Culture. Authors will not be charged any fee for publishing their work in open access in the series. Proposals must present original work and must have been submitted exclusively to ALAC. Both monographs and edited volumes are welcome. For more details, please visit the website: www.brill.com/ALAC
