A Digital Resource Award for a project to digitise early 20th Century research notebooks from three separate archives.

This project reunites the British School at Athens’ Digital Collections with Alan Wace’s research notebooks that formed the basis of his and Maurice Thompson’s 1912 publication Prehistoric Thessaly. Wace is an important link between Athens and Cambridge, as a former Director of the BSA (1914–1923) and as Laurence Professor of Classical Archaeology at Cambridge (1934–1944).

Digital Thessaly is now available to view on Cambridge University Digital Library.
