Delivery Information

Shipping will be calculated at checkout, based on weight, destination, and shipping method (standard or courier).


Orders typically despatch within 7-10 working days. Shipping times vary considerably depending on destination and shipping method. Please allow 28 days before enquiring about the whereabouts of an order.


UK Orders

Orders destined for the UK will default to courier. We are able to track these orders and, typically, the price is competitive when compared to untraceable shipping via Royal Mail.


Non-UK Orders

Orders heading to destinations outside the UK have the option to be sent via standard method (shipping via untraceable airmail), or courier. Standard shipments are not insured, and are sent at the recipients own risk. Heavier shipments must be shipped via courier. If you have any queries or concerns, please contact


Import Charges

Since the UK left the European Union, imports from the UK to EU countries are subject to import VAT. The customer may be contacted by a courier agent prior to delivery to request payment of any applicable VAT and customs clearance charges. VAT will be calculated at the local rate for book sales at the destination address. Customs clearance charges will vary by courier and destination. The customer will be liable for all import charges payable to the courier. Please note, Archaeopress is unable to advise the exact value of these charges in advance. Please contact prior to placing an order if you have any queries relating to the new Brexit rules.


We are working to ship all orders from local distribution points. We hope to have updates on this shortly.

If you wish to cancel an order please let us know as soon as possible. If we have already dispatched your order, you may return it at your own expense and we shall refund the cost of the books. Please contact us before returning any books.
