Founded in 1980 by Jeff Saward, and published annually, the journal acts as a forum for historical and theoretical research, the publication of archive material and as a monitor of current developments with the field. Each edition contains illustrated papers, notes, news and views on the latest discoveries, theories and ideas from researchers and enthusiasts worldwide, exchanging information to help create a clearer picture of the origins and distribution of the enigmatic labyrinth symbol and its descendants, from the earliest rock carvings and artefacts through to modern puzzle mazes of ever increasing complexity and ingenuity.
