Jahrbuch des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts

The Jahrbuch (JdI) of the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) has been published annually since 1886 with comprehensive and ground-braking articles of fundamental importance for art history and stylistic studies, iconography, typology, hermeneutics, and the history of archaeological sciences, especially in Classical Archaeology, but in other archaeological disciplines, as well.

The chronological range encompasses Prehistory to Late Antiquity with a focus on the Graeco-Roman period; articles by archaeologists worldwide are welcome. Excavation reports, notices or reviews are not published in the Jahrbuch.


The editor of the Jahrbuch is the Central Department of the German Archaeological Institute in Berlin.
