Excavation Records

The Archives is the principal repository for all Excavation Records associated with projects of the British School at Athens. The entire collection is in the process of being catalogued. Please look at the bottom of this page for completed finding aids to sections of the collection.

The Excavations Records have been arranged alphabetically. The list below provides a guide to the records of sites now housed in the Archives. The names of the sites are listed as they were recorded by the excavators and so have variances.

NOTE: Although the British School at Athens inherited the excavations of Knossos from Sir Arthur Evans, the Archives of the School do not hold material from his excavations EXCEPT six pottery notebooks of Duncan Mackenzie dated 1900-1904. For the Evans records and any material in the volumes from the Palace of Minos, please contact the Ashmolean Museum.
