The RRRA is taking a major step forward, marking a certain 'coming of age' for the Association, and for the place of Roman roads in academic research. In spring 2021 we will be publishing the first edition of our new annual Journal, Itinera, intended for a range of material. The Journal will welcome papers contributing to a better understanding of the road network and its place within the wider context of Roman studies, whether in the UK or internationally. The most important work taking place in Roman road studies will find a home here. The Journal is likely to include reports of digs, lidar discoveries, designation of 'new' routes through an expanded Margary system, and a range of peer-reviewed scholarly articles exploring the wider context of roads as related to military and civilian activity, forts, planning, surveying and all aspects of Roman life. Itinera will also have a section of shorter entries which will summarise all relevant fieldwork and discoveries in Britain from the previous year, even those with negative results.

Itinera will take its place alongside other archaeological Journals covering Roman studies, both national and regional. Where relevant work is published elsewhere, we expect at the very least to see reference to it in Itinera, which we aim to be a 'one stop shop' for studies of this sort.

RRRA members will, as part of their subscription, receive free digital copies of Itinera. Printed copies will, at a cost, be available for individuals, libraries and organisations. The Journal will not in any sense replace the RRRA newsletter but will be complementary to it as a work of reference.

Papers are invited (with a deadline of 15 November 2020) for consideration for the first edition, which is expected to appear in spring 2021. Notes for intending contributors, explaining the submission process and format required, are available at the link below. The deadline for submissions is 15th November, but please let us know as soon as possible if you are thinking of submitting a paper. Contact the Editor using the button below right.
