A Comprehensive Resource Covering Many Fields of
Anthropological Research

This international resource provides comprehensive indexing for the fields of anthropology, archaeology and related interdisciplinary research. Specifically, this includes social and cultural anthropology, Old and New World archaeology, physical anthropology and anthropological aspects of related subjects, with an emphasis on Mesoamerican, Native American and Andean archaeology and ethnology.

Credible and Robust Coverage with a Vast Array of Content

Published by the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University, Anthropological Literature indexes articles, reports, commentaries and obituaries found in hundreds of  journals and monographic series. With more than 640,000 records and articles, coverage is expansive and features works dating from the 18th century to the present. Additionally, Anthropological Literature is updated on a monthly basis and is constantly adding new articles, reports, commentaries and obituaries to its collection.

Featured Content in Foreign Languages

Content within Anthropological Literature is also presented in more than 50 languages, indexing articles in Romance languages, English, German, Slavic languages, and in Asian language journal articles, if summaries in one of the indexed languages are available.


My overall impression of the EBSCOhost interface is that it offers something for everybody.
