Archiving & e-Repositories

For detailed information about self-archiving and re-use of articles please refer to Cambridge University Press' website at (see section on HSS Journals).

An author's Accepted Manuscript (AM) may be placed on their personal webpage, departmental/institutional research repository and non-commercial subject repositories on acceptance of publication. (The Accepted Manuscript is the version of the article that has been accepted for publication in the journal. This version may have been revised following peer review but may be subject to further editorial input by Antiquity).

Cambridge University Press does not permit full articles in Accepted Manuscript (AM) or Version of Record (VOR) form to be posted on Commercial Repositories or Social Media Sites including, but not limited to, Social Science Research Network (‘SSRN’), ResearchGate,, Mendeley or LinkedIn.

The author may make hard copies of the article or an adapted version for their own purposes, including the right to make multiple copies for course use by their students, provided no sale is involved.

The author may reproduce the article or an adapted version of it in any volume of which they are editor or author subject to normal acknowledgement.

If your reuse is not covered by the above please follow the ‘Rights and Permissions’ quick link on the Cambridge University Press website for your region via

Cambridge University Press co-operates in various licensing schemes that allow material to be photocopied within agreed restraints (e.g. the CCC in the USA and the CLA in the UK). Any proceeds received from such licences, together with any proceeds from sales of subsidiary rights in Antiquity, directly support its continuing publication.
