Rutherford Press Limited

In 2004 Joyce Tyldesley and Steven Snape established Rutherford Press Limited as a specialist publishing firm dedicated to producing serious but accessible books on ancient Egypt while raising money for field work in Egypt.

Rutherford Press Limited also offers specialist typesetting and publishing services to editors and authors of Egyptology books and journals.

Donations from Rutherford Press Limited have been made to Manchester Museum and the Egypt Exploration Society. Currently Rutherford Press Limited is supporting the ongoing Ramesside fieldwork at the New Kingdom fortress site of Zawiyet Umm el-Rakham.
