Testimonials from Archaeopress Archaeology 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 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


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.
