The John Pendlebury Family Papers, which cover the period from 1913 to 1964, document the life of archaeologist and WWII hero John Pendlebury from his early years as a schoolboy in England through his career as an innovative archaeologist in the Mediterranean.
Seventy years ago the BSA was given a collection of R.A.F. aerial reconnaissance photographs of Greece taken during the Second World War between 1943-45. In 1953 an index album to this collection was created by John and Sheila Boardman.
As part of the quinquennial evaluation by BASIS (Committee for British Academy Sponsored Institutes and Societies) of the British School at Athens (BSA), a review visit to Athens and Crete was conducted between 8 and 12 December 2014
