The Role and Department

Applications are invited for the post of Antiquity Reviews Editor. Antiquity (www.antiquity.ac.uk) is a world archaeology journal publishing archaeological research on all periods, regions, theories and methods. Alongside original research articles, the journal publishes a substantial number of book reviews each year (150+). The primary purpose of the role is to manage Antiquity’s book reviews section and, more broadly, to contribute to the overall running of the journal. The successful applicant must possess broad archaeological knowledge and demonstrate the ability to quickly acquire understanding of new specialist areas. The role demands attention to detail and the exercise of diplomacy and judgment in the handling of sensitive materials and situations, especially when dealing with external stakeholders.

The Reviews Editor is responsible for liaising with publishing companies to identify the latest books for review and for the planning, commissioning and editing of the reviews section for each issue (six per year). In addition, each issue features an extended review of a selection of books (New Book Chronicle) authored by the Reviews Editor.

The Reviews Editor plays a key role in the editorial team, alongside the Editor and Associate Editor, in ensuring the maintenance of the highest academic and professional standards. The Reviews Editor reports to the Editor of Antiquity and will, if necessary, be able to deputise in the absence of the Editor, including the making of editorial decisions, and other tasks essential for the timely publication of the journal.

Antiquity is owned by the Antiquity Trust, a registered charity, and is produced by Antiquity Publications Ltd in partnership with Cambridge University Press. The editorial office is based in the Department of Archaeology at Durham University and is solely responsible for the academic standards, production, development and management of the journal. Each year, the Antiquity office edits and publishes approximately 2000 pages of print and digital content digital output, serving the global archaeology community.
