Archaeological Sciences represent the interface between archaeology and the natural and physical sciences, and they are nowadays a fundamental part of modern archaeological research. This interdisciplinary field requires close collaboration between archaeologists, art historians, museum curators, and different scientists who apply modern instrumental techniques to extract information from ancient past. In this way the Special Issue aims to bridge the gap among these figures with widely different scientific backgrounds sharing a common interest in developing and applying scientific methods, and providing a forum to encourage the continued integration of scientific methodologies in archaeological research.

The focus of this Special Issue spans a time depth from the Paleolithic to the present, with active field and laboratory researches around the globe. These endeavors contribute to an understanding of both past and present day communities, covering globally relevant topics with the emphasis on the archaeological contexts and analytical techniques.
