One of the central aims of the World Archaeological Congress is education about the past. In pursuit of this aim, WAC publishes a number of book series:

Editors and contributors to the WAC book series waive any royalties they might normally receive from a publisher. Instead all royalties are used to help the wider work of WAC. Each of the publishers above is gratefully acknowledged for their support of this aim.
