is the newsletter of EAA members for EAA members. TEA is happy to
publish not only reports on excavations and teaching, current research
projects and public archaeology, exhibitions and conferences, but also
comments to previous
TEA as well as EJA contributions. You
may want to use TEA to advertise or report on seminars, workshops
or events that you believe are of interest to EAA members. Session organizers
from the EAA Annual Meetings may want to publish summaries or follow-ups.
Formats published also include notes, announcements, letters, requests
etc. Reports should range between 2,000-3,000 words and may contain ca.
5 images. Other formats should be shorter.
should follow the Harvard or scientific convention. Bibliographic references
in the text should contain within parentheses the author's surname or some
conventional shortening of the title of the work if no immediate author
or editor is listed (note that this should correspond to the bibliographic
entry in the references at the end of the paper) and date of publication
and page references, such as (Childe 1954:117) or (Radiocarbon Handbook
1988:iv). Multiple references by the same author should be separated with
a comma, e.g. (Nadelkopf 1888, 1893) and dates should be separated from
pages with a full colon (e.g. Tete d'épingle 1901:22). Multiple references
by different authors should be listed alphabetically in the text, not chronologically,
and should be separated by semi-colons (e.g. Bright 2005; Fellows 2006;
Soloman 1996). References should be listed alphabetically at the end of
the paper with book or journal titles italicized or underlined, including
place of publication and publisher, issue and page numbers.

all line diagrams and photographs are termed 'Figures' and should be referred
to as such in the manuscript. They should be numbered consecutively. Line
diagrams should be presented in a form suitable for immediate reproduction
(i.e. not requiring redrawing) on a CD as TIFF or EPS files (all fonts
embedded) with a resolution of 600dpi. They should be reproducible to within
a maximum final printed text area of 115 mm x 185 mm. Photographs should
preferably be submitted as TIFF or EPS files or as clear, glossy, unmounted
black and white prints with a good range of contrast. All figures should
have short descriptive captions typed on a separate sheet.
should be typed (double line-spaced) on separate sheets. All tables should
have short descriptive captions with footnotes and their source(s) typed
below the tables. AUTHORS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR OBTAINING PERMISSIONS FROM
COPYRIGHT HOLDERS for reproducing through any medium of communication any
illustrations, tables, figures or lengthy quotations previously published
use a clear readable style, avoiding jargon. If technical terms or acronyms
must be included, define them when first used. Use non-racist, non-sexist
language and plurals rather than he/she. Capitalize sparingly. Never capitalize
archaeological features, e.g. pit B and not Pit B. Capitalize magnetic
directions only when part of a recognized name, such as South America,
otherwise, e.g. northern England. Capitalize archaeological periods, such
as Neolithic, whether as noun or adjective. Chemical elements should be
spelt out in textual passages, but given in their abbreviated form, e.g.
Au, Pb, in statistical paragraphs, tables and figures. Ratios should be
presented thus: 1:10 or silver:gold.
dates as date, month, year: e.g. 4 July 1776. Use 1960s (not sixties) without
an apostrophe and spell out the number of centuries or millennia: e.g.
fourth century AD or third millennium BC. Invert the order of date and
AD when using specific numbers, e.g. AD 980. There are no commas in thousands
of years old, but there are in tens of thousands of years old: e.g. 4500
BC and 12,000 BP. Uncalibrated radiocarbon years follow the international
convention (mean value ± standard deviation BP, using the 5568-year half-life;
always give the laboratory code number), Calibrated dates should be given
as date ranges cal BC and cal AD, together with the probability level (1
sigma or 2 sigma); specify which calibration curve is being used.
UK or US spellings may be used but always use '-ize' spellings as given
in the Oxford English Dictionary (e.g. organize, recognize).
use single quotation marks with double quotes inside single quotes. Do
not use points in abbreviations, contractions or acronyms (e.g. AD, USA,
