The Journal welcomes 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 includes reports of excavations, 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 also contains a section of shorter entries, Roman Roads in 2022 summarising all relevant fieldwork and discoveries in Britain from the previous year, even those with negative results.

Papers are invited (with a deadline of 15 November 2023) for consideration for the fourth volume, which is expected to be published in May 2024. Notes for intending contributors, explaining the submission process and format required, are available at the links below. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are thinking of submitting a paper. Contact the Editor using the button below.
