Berytus is an international peer-reviewed journal devoted to the archaeological study of Syria and Lebanon for all periods. The journal will also consider articles on neighbouring regions and in related fields. Berytus is published annually.
The journal was founded in 1934 at AUB by the distinguished Professor of Archaeology, Harald Ingholt. Berytus was one of the first journals devoted primarily to the archaeology and history of Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Palestine from prehistoric to Ottoman times. It quickly gained an unrivalled international reputation and has published contributions from many of the leading archaeologists of the Near East, including: Dmitri Baramki, Leila Badre, Lorraine Copeland, Maurice Dunand, Michal Gawlikowski, Rolf Hachmann, Roger Saidah, and Helga Seeden to name just a few.
