The Faculty is delighted to announce the launch of the Mycenae Archive. 

One hundred years ago, Alan Wace – Cambridge Classics alumnus and former Laurence Professor of Classical Archaeology – started with his team excavations at Mycenae. One of the leading archaeologists of early Greece in the 20th century, Wace was Director of the British School at Athens (BSA) from 1914 to 1923 and his first excavation in this post was at Mycenae. To celebrate this significant anniversary, the Faculty of Classics in Cambridge has collaborated with the University Library and the BSA to digitise the excavation records from Wace's work at the site from 1920 to 1957.
