This journal presents research studies that seek to recenter (or decenter) archaeology, and that challenge local and global power geometries. It can be accessed through the website of Springer, an academic publisher.
The journal focusses on ethics and archaeology; public archaeology; legacies of colonialism and nationalism within the discipline; the interplay of local and global archaeological traditions; theory and archaeology; the discipline’s involvement in projects of memory, identity, and restitution; and rights and ethics relating to cultural property, issues of acquisition, custodianship, conservation, and display.

Some of the articles published in the journal are:
