Manuscripts should be written in English. Submission is taken to imply that the paper has not been published previously and is not being considered for publication elsewhere. Three copies of the manuscript, double-spaced throughout and with generous margins, should be submitted. Ideally, articles are 5000-8000 words, but shorter and longer papers are also welcome. An abstract of 100-150 words should accompany articles but not shorter contributions. 4-6 keywords should be listed below the abstract. For the purposes of blind refereeing, authors’ name, affiliation and contact information should be provided on a separate sheet. Organize the main text clearly. Three levels of headings and subheadings can be used. Indicate hiearchy by using CAPITALS in headings, italics in first-level subheading and regular text in second-level subheadings.
Contributors are responsible for obtaining permission from copyright holders to reproduce maps, figures, tables, or any previously published material other than their own.
Use references in the text as follows: e.g. (Nordman 1968: 23-5), (Descola & Pálsson 1996). When citing to a work by more than two authors, the reference should read: e.g. (Kinnunen et al. 1985). Use a semicolon to separate multiple references and letters a, b, c, etc., to distinguish between the works by the same author published in the same year: (Olsen 1998a; 1998b). Avoid notes. Where they are absolutely necessary, use endnotes rather than footnotes. Do not use ibid., op. cit. or other related expressions. List references alphabetically at the end of the paper in the following form:

Kristiansen, K. 1991. Chiefdoms, states, and systems of social evolution. In T. Earle (ed.), Chiefdoms: Power, Economy and Ideology: 16–43. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge.

References in Cyrillics should be translitterated into Roman script according to English translitteration system (see enclosed translitteration table); no Cyrillic letters should be used.
Maps, site-plans, photographs and other illustrations are referred to as figures. Only black and white and greyscale illustrations can be used. Illustrations should preferably be submitted both as good-quality hard copies and 600dpi TIFF or EPS files on a CD-ROM. All text in illustrations must be converted into graphics or the used fonts included in relevant files. Tables, which must be of a reasonable size due to the page size of the journal (B5), are referred to as tables. Avoid greyscale tones in tables. All illustrations and tables should be submitted on a separate sheet and/or as separate files. Identify files with author’s name and the number of table/illustration. A list of captions to figures and tables must be provided in a separate sheet.
Quotations: Use single inverted commas. Quotations above 40 words should be extracted and indented, and no quotation marks are used.
Dates: 28 May 1977, the 16th century, the 1880s.
Numerals: Use the fewest numerals possible, e.g. 10-16, 46-9, 165-78, 1939-45. Spell out numerals from one to nine, but always use numerals for ages, measurements and percentages.
Emphases: In the text, italics can be used to emphasize certain words or parts of sentences. Use italics sparingly, and never use bold in emphases.
Radiocarbon dates are given, according to international convention, in the following form: e.g. 411 ±55 BP (Wk-10180). Calibrated dates should be expressed as follows: e.g. cal. AD 600, 200 cal. BC, a date in the range cal. AD 140-360. The calibration curves used should be indicated.
