Digital Mycenae Archive

We have received the following note from Professor John Bennet (BSA) and Dr. Yannis Galanakis (Cambridge): “We are delighted to announce the launch of the digital Mycenae Archive in celebration of the centenary of British excavations at the renowned Bronze Age site. It draws upon the core collection in the Archive of the Faculty of Classics at the University of Cambridge and two collections from the Archive of the British School at Athens (BSA): the Mycenae Excavation Records and part of its BSA-Society for the Promotion of Hellenic Studies (SPHS) Image Collection.
The Mycenae Archive consists of notebooks, drawings, plans and photographs of the archaeological endeavours of the team of the BSA at Mycenae in 1920-1923, 1939 and 1950-1957 under the directorship of Alan John Bayard Wace (1879-1957), BSA Director (1914-23). All these documents have been digitised and reunited to be available as a resource for exploring Mycenae in the University of Cambridge Digital Library: https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/collections/mycenae. The material held at the BSA is also available via the School’s Digital Collections website https://digital.bsa.ac.uk/ Happy Browsing!”

Photographs in the CMS series

We also reprint this note from Professor Ingo Pini regarding the photographs in the CMS series: “To all colleagues interested in the study of Minoan and Helladic seals,
signet rings and sealings:
In recent years I undertook the time-consuming effort to improve the quality of the photographs of original seals, signet rings and sealings as well as that of modern impressions.
Many new photographs of impressions were made. In addition a better quality of the already existing photographs as published in the volumes of the CMS series was achieved by using Photoshop. Colleagues should now use the photographs of ARACHNE
