Why a University Press?

Through the Museum’s publications, we advance our mission of explaining the similarities and differences in ancient societies. Our books carry the name of the University of Michigan to readers and scholars around the world. Through our books, we make available to the general public the results of years of research, and we promote communication between scholars at the local and global level.
