Reproduction requests

Requests to reproduce or disseminate images of the Society’s papyri, archive, or images published in books should be directed to the Society's archivist at [email protected].

You should attach a request form (available here) detailing your intended use of the material. 

Please note that the Society does not retain copyright of images published in the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology or Egyptian Archaeology, unless it relates to the Society's own fieldwork and research. 

All material under EES copyright must be credited as Courtesy of The Egypt Exploration Society, in the case of images acquired from the Oxyrhynchus Imaging papyri Project this must state Courtesy of The Egypt Exploration Society and the University of Oxford Imaging Papyri Project.


In instances where the Society is required to provide or create a digital image for reproduction, a £25 (exc. VAT) supply fee will be charged - this is also applicable to non-profit users. If an external service provider is required to digitise the material then the charge for this will be made to the individual/company making the request. 

Permission will be granted free to not-for-profit enterprises and scholarly publications. Charges will be made to commercial and media companies and will be discussed after the request form has been received by the archivist.
