The journal primarily focuses on prehistory, including the beginnings and early development of complex societies. AAOA is dedicated to publishing papers on humankind, encompassing the full range of anthropological consequences on human cultures and on other primate species. AAOA presents the results of research that include methodological and theoretical interface between archaeology and the anthropology.
