was founded by Anthony Hands and David Walker in 1974, for the speedy
publication and wide dissemination of works on British archaeology
to a professional and academic audience. One year later the 'Supplementary
Series' (hence the prefix 'S') later renamed the 'International
Series', was established. Following the death of David Walker in
1989, the production of new titles was taken over by Tempvs Reparatvm
Ltd from 1991-97 and subsequently by two organisations: Archaeopress
and John & Erica Hedges Ltd [http://www.barhedges.com],
both based in Oxford.
Books Ltd., successor to BAR Ltd., remains the sole distributor
for both series.
The policy of BAR remains unchanged: to publish scholarly works
on all aspects of world archaeology in the English, French, German,
Italian and Spanish languages and to distribute them worldwide.
