Periodicità / Frequency: Annuale/Yearly

«TELESTES» seeks to fill a gap in current scholarly publications and specialist periodicals on the archaeological evidence of musical and dance interest. It also aims to place musical and choral performances of the past into one clearly defined space and event in order to interpret their cultural significance, both religious and social, and to understand what music and making music and dance meant in ancient societies. Furthermore, the Journal publishes papers on the study of sound and hearing along with related sensorial aspects in archaeological contexts and on past soundscapes and sonic fabrics (anthrophony, biophony, and geophony): this included subject areas that range from the behaviour of sound in a sonic space and aural architecture to auditory experience and physical acoustics, as well as auditory archaeology and the importance of sound as a medium of social interaction in the past.
The Journal welcomes research on the broadly defined Mediterranean region and from other areas of the world, such as North Europe, Central and South America, Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Pacific Rim. Contributions pertaining to different periods are welcome. Cross-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary approaches would be particularly appreciated.
The preferred language for the contributions is English, but other languages (including German, French, Italian and Spanish) are acceptable.

«Telestes» is an International Peer-Reviewed Journal.
The eContent is Archived with Clockss and Portico.
