Classics & Ancient History

We have a rich and growing range of Classics books including textbooks and sourcebooks for students and critical and challenging research work for academics. We combine high quality scholarship with high production values to produce important and beautiful books.

We have series on The Edinburgh History of Ancient Rome, Edinburgh Studies in Ancient Persia, The Edinburgh History of the Greeks, Screening Antiquity and Intersectionality in Classical Antiquity. We plan to expand this interdisciplinary list to engage further with how the ancient past informs and impacts on our contemporary society.

If you would like to publish with Edinburgh University Press, please do be in touch and I’d love to hear what you think about our books.
