The Nordic Graduate School in Archaeology, ‘Dialogues with the Past’ (DIALPAST), is a well-established research school for PhD students from the Nordic countries, Kiel, St.Petersburg and the Baltics. Through world-class courses DialPast promotes international network-building amongst PhD students, integrating archaeological networks across national, disciplinary and institutional boundaries.

Invitation to Write for Primitive Tider

The next issue of Primitive tider (2018) will have a special section called “Død og begravelse” (“Death and burial”). Primitive tider would like to invite the PhD students who participated in the Dialogues with the Past course “The Archaeology of Burials” to submit articles for this issue before March 15 2018.

Primitive tider is a level 1 journal of archaeology with double blind peer review. They regularly publish texts written by experienced researchers, but have a particular focus on being a high quality publication channel for early career researchers.

For more information about the journal (in Norwegian), see their webpage. For author guidelines, see “forfatterveiledning” here (in Norwegian) and here (in English).

Scandinavian speaking students are encouraged to submit texts in these languages (Swedish, Danish, or Norwegian). We also accept texts in English. Dialogues with the Past will provide English proof reading services for authors whose articles have been accepted for publication.

Submissions and questions about the journal or issue can be directed to
