The standard font used in our publications is Times New Roman, 10 pt, single line spacing.

Please use Times Semitic for Hebrew and TimesClassGreek for Greek – if TimesClassGreek does not have a large enough selection of accents for the Greek being reproduced please use Minion Pro.


Paragraph layout

Text should be justified and each paragraph should be separated with a line space. Use return/enter button to make this line space NOT paragraph formatting.

There should only be one space between a full stop and the next word, not two as is commonly found in formal typed text.



Please use bold, bold italic and italic for subheadings. Never use underlining.



Preferred layout:

Book –

Boardman, J., 2001, The history of Greek Vases: potters, painters and pictures (London: Thames & Hudson)


Paper in a book –

Henig, M., 2006, ‘The Language of Love in Roman Britain: jewellery and the emotions’ in M. Henig (ed.) Roman Art, Religion and Society, BAR S1577 (Oxford)


Paper in a journal –

Johns, C. et al., 1999, ‘A mid-fifth century hoard of Roman and Pseudo-Roman material from Patching, West Sussex’, Britannia 30, pp. 301-315


We do not insist on this layout, but consistency in layout is essential.

Where Ibid. and et al. (do not use et alii.) are used they should be italicised.


Common Abbreviations






Contractions which finish with the same letter as the word do not have take full stop eg. Dr /  Mr / eds

Contractions which do not finish with the same letter as the word do take a full stop eg.  ed. /  no. 1



Years should NEVER have an apostrophe, i.e. 1960s, 450s  NOT 1960’s 450’s. This is a common mistake and worth emphasizing to authors.

Choose either B.C. and A.D. or BC and AD and be consistent.

BC goes after the date, AD before, when talking about a specific date, i.e. 440 BC and AD 500

When talking about millennia or centuries, BC and AD follow the date, i.e. 5th century BC, 1st millenium AD

If the date is approximate please use c. with a space between the c. and the date, i.e.   c. 500 BC

When using numerals to indicate 5th, 2nd, 3rd etc, the letters can be superscript (5th) or not – choose one style and be consistent. Please note word will often automatically convert these to superscript, this function can be turned off, or else each occurrence must be checked and changed back to regular script.


Description for website

Please provide a short description (c. 200-300 word) of the main content of the book. We will use this text for our website.



All images must be Black and White (grayscale) and will be reproduced as such, unless a prior arrangement has been made with Archaeopress to reproduce in colour.

All images must be of high enough resolution to reproduce as a high quality image. All images must be scanned at at least 600 DPI (Line Art: 1000 DPI; Scans from Slides: 1200 DPI) from a decent quality original. The author must provide the editor with copies of images as Tiff or Jpeg files whether or not the paper has been formatted. This is so that the publisher can make changes if necessary.


Figure captions

Captions should be differentiated from text by use of a different style – italics, bold, or small caps. They may also be centred and in a different size. Once a style is chosen, be consistent. All figures should have a caption which should include any necessary copyright information. All images that do not belong to the author must have copyright cleared on them and this is the responsibility of the individual authors.

References to figures in the text should be styled – (Fig. 1) or (Figure 1). Use a capital letter when referring to a figure in the paper, if referring to a figure from another book/paper use a small f.


List of Contributors’ addresses

Please include one page with a list of the correspondence and email addresses of all the contributors for inclusion in the book.



Quotations which exceed two lines in length should be indented and separated from text before and after with a line space.  Indents should be 5mm to the left and right.

Original spellings should be used. Where necessary use [sic]


Quotation marks

Use single quotation marks ‘   ’  throughout and double quotation marks for a quotation within a quote (eg. ‘He said “not now” and left’).

Please use curly quotation marks ‘’  not straight ones  ' '



Tables should be formatted in Word, not in Excel.
