Testimonials from Archaeopress Authors and Editors

Publishing our research to reach the best specialists and widest audiences is at the heart of what we do. Having worked closely with Archaeopress for many years, I cannot praise their dedication and products highly enough, and am looking forward to publishing many more books with them.Dr St John Simpson, The British Museum


In choosing a publisher I take in mind several factors. These include the reputation of the publisher, the nature of the product and how well they might market my book. Beyond these issues are how well they deliver on their promises and how easy they are to work with. I have worked with Archaeopress for several years and found that they do deliver on their promises, they are easy to work with and they produce a book that I like... and sells. What more as an author could I ask for?Professor David J. Breeze


I have worked with Archaeopress for more than 20 years as the editor of a journal and in the publication of several books and have found the staff unfailingly helpful and extremely efficient. The books and journals they produce are meticulously produced, are beautiful to look at and to handle, and are, of course, also available as e-books and pdfs. The subject-matter of their publications covers an enormous range within a very broad understanding of “archaeology” and “history”. I have always enjoyed working with their team and look forward to continuing to do so for many years. Whenever someone asks me to recommend a publisher for a work on archaeology or history I always suggest Archaeopress.Michael C.A. Macdonald, F.B.A, Honorary Fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford, and Fellow of the British Academy


I’ve been delighted to work with Archaeopress for ten years, both as an author and a representative of Oxford University’s Classical Art Research Centre. I’ve always found David, Rajka and the team endlessly helpful, flexible and efficient. Archaeopress’ can-do approach is invaluable when it comes to publishing under pressure or with bespoke formats. What’s changed over these years is that advances in technology now make the standard even of low-cost printing of text and images very high, while open access publishing has also created new possibilities.Professor Peter Stewart, Director of the Classical Art Research Centre, University of Oxford


Archaeopress brings the archaeological past to our desktops in the best ways possible! Whether as printed volumes or ebooks, their successful formula benefits both writers and readers by providing an outlet for the widest possible range of books, reports, and collected papers. Their open access arrangements are the best in the field, and with opportunities to include supporting videos, text, and audio they are working towards a truly 360 vision of publishing in the round.Professor Timothy Darvill, Head of the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology, Bournemouth University


I can highly recommend Archaeopress. The experience of publishing a large, co-authored monograph with Archaeopress was entirely positive. The team offered a fast, efficient service, dealing with a complex manuscript with care and attention. I'm delighted with the quality of the resulting digital Open Access and print versions. I wouldn't hesitate to publish again with Archaeopress.Dr Robert Witcher, Durham University


MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology) Northampton have published 15 books with Archaeopress over the last five years. These range from a report on the Wollaston Saxon Pioneer Helmet, which was nominated by Current Archaeology for book of the year, to a hardback book on two adjacent road schemes, which was more than 600 pages long and accessible as a free download. Most of these books have been reviewed whether in county journals, popular publications including British Archaeology to national journals such as Medieval Archaeology. We use Archaeopress for our monographs as we are extremely satisfied with the high-quality and versatile product they produce. Their type-setting is fast and accurate and they are invariably quick in updating the proofs following our comments. The end result are good quality books which enable us to disseminate the results of our work effectively and economically. Rob Atkins, MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology)


Archaeopress is now one of the leading international publishing houses for archaeology research. Highly professional at all stages of the publication process, their support is invaluable for established and emerging researchers in the field.Professor William O'Brien, University College Cork, Ireland


I published my first research with Archaeopress in 2015, and since then I have always tried to publish the manuscripts I cared about most with this publishing house: the publications have always been of excellent quality and with a guarantee of maximum distribution. Last but not least, there is always a friendly and collaborative atmosphere when working with all the staff, an added value that is certainly very appreciated by an author.Stefano Anastasio, Soprintendenza Archeologia, Belle Arti e Paesaggio per la città metropolitana di Firenze e le Province di Pistoia e Prato


Over the last few years, my wife (Beverley Ballin Smith) and I have both published several monographs with Archaeopress, and we have been impressed by how pain-free this process has been – the Archaeopress staff were exceptionally kind and helpful, the reviewing process was uncomplicated and stress-free, and the final products were ‘top notch’. We will definitely be back.Torben Bjarke Ballin, Lithic Research


I have always found working with Archaeopress an extremely pleasant and rewarding experience: a remarkably quick turnaround, with exceptionally fast and efficient editorial and production work – their design skills ensure that the resulting volumes are always eye-catching, both inside and out. And it is also gratifying that a number of their publications are free to download! Dr Paul Bahn


For my most recent book – Visions of the Roman North. Art and Identity in Northern Roman Britain (published by Archaeopress in April 2021) – I tentatively approached Archaeopress to scope them out as potential publisher. This was not because I was unhappy with my previous publisher, but rather that I was looking for a very different format of presentation for this new study and a much much shorter turnaround period between submission of a manuscript and publication of the book. Archaeopress was able and very willing to meet my needs and I was particularly impressed by the proof layout of the pages when ready and the thorough and patient work done at Archaeopress during the proof correction stages. The attention to detail over placement, size, and sharpness of each individual image was notably impressive, particularly as the book was all about the power of images to inform, inspire, confuse, and delight. I am very pleased indeed with the published book and the collaborative nature of the endeavour. Dr Iain Ferris
