PCMA Excavation Series initiated in 2011, is a book series presenting excavation reports from sites studied by PCMA missions. It comprises both final and intermediate reports on archaeological and other fieldwork conducted at the site. This can include conservation and site presentation projects as well as the results of auxiliary research: topographical, geophysical, archaeozoological and archaeobotanical, etc.

PCMA Archaeological Guides are concise, richly-illustrated overviews of the history and material culture of chosen sites, based on up-to-date research. They will satisfy the needs of students who look for a scholarly, yet user-friendly introduction to the site and its background and for enthusiasts of the history and archaeology of the region. Travelers planning a journey off the beaten track will find it a first-rate (and often the only available) source of information on the historical monuments they are about to visit. The series was established in 2013.
