About Oxbow Books

Oxbow Books was founded in 1983 by David Brown, and started life in a shed in the garden of St Cross College, Oxford. The company quickly outgrew the shed, and moved to more spacious premises where the number of books grew and grew, as did the number of staff. In the mid-1980s an office was established in North America, which became the David Brown Book Company and later Casemate Academic, now a major academic book distributor.

Beginning with our subject specialities of archaeology, ancient history and medieval studies, Oxbow's distribution operation offers books in many other humanities and social science subject areas, from modern history to music and art. 

Now publishing around 80 books a year Oxbow Books has become a leading publisher in the field of archaeology and in 2013 the company celebrated its 30th anniversary.
