The latest edition of the Journal comprises ten articles offering a diverse collection of historical and archaeological examinations of Bermuda by local and overseas scholars.

First published in 1989 as a successor to the Bermuda Historical Quarterly, the Bermuda Journal of Archaeology and Maritime History is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes articles on archaeological and historical research related to Bermuda.

Covering a wide range of topics including slavery, smuggling, shipwrecks, military and naval history, whaling, and agriculture, the Journal has become an essential resource for any researcher examining Bermuda’s history and its connections with the wider Atlantic World.
