Journal

Golden bust of Marcus Aurelius made for the Cigognier Temple in Avenches.

The 'Old World Archaeologist' journal contains articles on various 'Old World' archaeological subjects depicted on postage stamps and other postal materials. Occasionally, areas beyond the 'Old World' are featured as well as society news, in-depth articles and new stamp issues of interest.

Members receive four issues (one volume) of the award winning 'Old World Archaeologist' mailed via first class mail in the United States, and airmail to Canada and Mexico. Other international addresses require airmail postage and the international dues include this additional cost.

A sample paper copy of the 'Old World Archaeologist' is available for $4.00 ($5.50 airmail) from the editor.

Past issues of the 'Old World Archaeologist' are available only in volumes. Volume I is out of print, Volumes II through XI are $10.00 per volume. The index to Volumes I - IV is $1.00 and the index for Volumes V - VII is $2.00. All remittances must be made in U.S. funds payable to OWASU and mailed to the editor.
