Mesolithic Miscellany is a free and community-run source of news, information and discussion of the European Mesolithic.


Mesolithic Miscellany is an internet journal with no subscription fee. We aim to publish twice a year, providing:

  • research articles
  • synopses of recent excavations
  • statements for debate
  • conference announcements and summaries
  • radiocarbon dates
  • PhD student topics
  • recent journal paper alerts
  • obituaries

In addition, we are now beginning to facilitate web services to help the Mesolithic Studies community communicate and collaborate faster and more effectively.

Please keep in touch with your ideas and contributions.
You can also follow us on Twitter or keep up with us on Facebook.
