El Boletín de Arqueología PUCP es la revista de la Especialidad de Arqueología del Departamento de Humanidades de la Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú. Se inicia en 1997, como parte de la necesidad de contar con un foro de diálogo entre los arqueólogos nacionales, así como entre ellos y sus colegas extranjeros. Asimismo, continúa la tradición iniciada por el Boletín del Seminario de Arqueología del Instituto Riva-Agüero (Nos. del 1 al 20, 1969-1978).
