The focus of Archivum Eurasiae Medii Aevi is on the political, social, economic and linguistic history of the peoples of the Eurasian steppes and adjoining regions from late antiquity to the Mongol Empire and its successor states. Among its primary concerns are questions regarding the Iranian steppe peoples, the Huns, the Oghur and Bulghar Turkic peoples, the Sabirs, the Avars, the Khazars and other peoples of the Türk Empire, the Hungarians, Pechenegs, Cumans and peoples of the Mongol Empire. The periodical also touches on many points in the history of the Slavic world, Crimea, Byzantium, Iran, the Caucasus, the lands of Islam and the peoples of Central and Northern Europe, and it elucidates various questions of Turkic and steppe history.
