Welcome to the hunter-gatherer research journal

Before Farming: the archaeology and anthropology of hunter-gatherers is a wide-ranging, international, English language journal covering all aspects of hunter-gatherer studies. From play to politics, from food to fauna, from lithics to language, from music to movement - if it relates to hunter-gatherers, we cover it all, regardless of time or place.

All research submitted is peer reviewed. We deal directly with our authors and subscribers, offering a personal not automated service. Abstracts, editorials and news items are freely accessible online but to access the full contents of the journal you will need a subscription.
