Childhood in the Past: an International Journal provides an important forum for the publication of papers that deal with all aspects of children and childhood in the past. The focus of the journal is children, childhood and all aspects of the representation of children in the past, and a great variety of source materials; historical, archaeological, anthropological, literary, etc, are used. The Journal fills an important gap in recognising that the study of childhood in the past is a cross-disciplinary venture, requiring communication of ideas across normal academic and chronological boundaries. Papers from all disciplines relating to the study of childhood in the past - archaeological, anthropological, medical, historical, psychological etc, are included in the Journal.
The Journal is peer reviewed and available to purchase on-line at:
