HFF Publication Series

Established in April 2018, the Honor Frost Foundation Publication Series supports the dissemination of books on maritime archaeology of the eastern Mediterranean, specifically Cyprus, Egypt, Lebanon, and Syria.

Books published may fall under the Research Series or the General Series. The Research Series seeks high-quality scholarship that advances the field of maritime archaeology in the eastern Mediterranean. This peer-reviewed series offers HFF-supported authors the opportunity to publish a scholarly monograph emanating from their new and innovative research in the region. The Research Series is also an outlet for rigorous collaborative scholarly projects, such as edited volumes that address themes specific to maritime archaeology in the eastern Mediterranean but which may have implications for the broader Mediterranean Sea or maritime archaeology in general. The General Series publishes books on the maritime archaeology of the eastern Mediterranean that are of interest to the wider public, such as memoirs, biographies, and collected essays.

Volumes in the Research and General Series are published through Sidestone Press in Leiden, The Netherlands, with the assistance of the HFF Publications Manager, Dr. Sara Rich. All publications are freely available through Open Access via the Sidestone webpages for the General Series and the Research Series.

A wide range of Short Reports, SCUCH Policy Publications, and Other Publication Projects are available on our main Publications Page
