About the Journal

The Journal of Music Archaeology (JMA) is the first specialist academic Open-Access periodical in the field of music archaeology, continuing the spirit of Studien zur Musikarchäologie, which appeared within Orient-Archäologie. It addresses questions concerning the archaeology of sound and rhythmical behaviour of past cultures all over the globe, including the study and reconstruction of certain or possible sound tools, the investigation of soundscapes, especially where intentionally chosen or erected, as well as related historical, anthropological and ethnological research based on iconographies, literatures, and comparative studies reflecting the wide range of approaches and methodologies that has characterised music archaeology from its beginnings.
