Left Coast Press

The Institute of Archaeology produces many key books for archaeologists worldwide in partnership with Left Coast Press who have published books for us since 2006 and who also reprint and distribute all our early publications.

The overall series editor is Professor Ruth Whitehouse, chair of the Institute’s Publications Committee. This committee meets at least three times a year to discuss new proposals, appoint referees and decide whether to recommend publication of a manuscript to Left Coast Press.

They fall into four broad categories: Recent titles in the General Series; Critical Cultural Heritage Series; Encounters with Ancient Egypt; Reprints and Early titles. Full details of individual books, often with independent reviews, can be found on the Left Coast Press website.
