Series Introduction

Our new journal Old world. Journal of Ancient Africa and Eurasia is devoted to publishing advanced scholarly works on any aspect of ancient civilizations of the Old World, that is, of Africa and Eurasia, with a comparative and interdisciplinary perspective. We aim at offering a comprehensive perspective on civilizations developed in these regions in pre-modern times, with a broad chronological span ranging from prehistory to the fall of the Eastern Roman Empire in the XV century, as well as with a broad disciplinary coverage including history, archeology, art and architecture, philology, literature, philosophy, religion studies, linguistics, sociology, anthropology, etc. The journal, in cooperation with Brill, presents studies from both eminent scholars and promising young talents.
