Excerpt from Prehistoric Thessaly: Being a few Account of modern Excavations and Explorations in North-Eastern Greece From Lake Kopais to the Borders of Macedonia
The current paintings is an try and gather in a handy shape the entire archaeological proof as but on hand for the prehistoric interval in North-Eastern Greece. Chapters I - X, that are only descriptive, comprise complete bills of our personal excavations with a precis of the discoveries of others. those we are hoping could be of everlasting price, yet how some distance the theories recommend within the different chapters may be justified time on my own can show.
Our personal excavations in North Greece have all been performed lower than the aegis of the British college at Athens, of which we're scholars. Our guides in reference to them are as follows:
1907. "Excavations at Theotoku," A. J. B. W., J. P. suspend, B.S.A. XIII, pp. 309 ff.
1908. "Excavations at Zerelia," A. J. B. W., J. P. suspend, M. S. T., B.S.A. XIV, p. 197. "Early Civilisation in North Greece," A. J. B. W., J. P. suspend, M. S. T., Liverpool Annals, 1908, pp. 118 ff., 131 ff. "The Connection of the Aegean Civilisation with crucial Europe," T. E. Peet, A. J. B. W., M. S. T., Classical overview, 1908, pp. 233 ff.
1909. "Excavations at Lianokladhi, and Tsani Maghula," A. J. B. W., M. S. T., Liverpool Annals, 1909, pp. 149 ff. "Prehistoric Mounds in Macedonia," A. J. B. W., M. S. T., ibid. pp. 159 ff. "The Connection of the Aegean tradition with Servia," M. S. T., A. J. B. W., Classical evaluate, 1909, pp. 209 ff.
1910. "Excavations at Tsangli, and Rakhmani," see Dawkins, J.H.S. 1910, p. 360; Reinach, Rev. Arch. 1910, II, pp. 429 ff.
A paper containing an early draft of a part of bankruptcy i used to be learn at a gathering of the study Committee of the Royal Geographical Society, and has been released within the Geographical magazine, Vol. XXXVII, pp. 631 ff. of those courses these giving studies of our excavations are outdated via the current paintings, and the perspectives expressed within the different papers are to be changed in line with Chapters XI - XVII and Appendix I. Mr Droop's enforced absence on the grounds that 1909 has proved an irreparable loss. in the course of our excavations at Lianokladhi and Tsani we have been lucky in having the help of Mr T. E. Peet, because of the generosity of the British college at Athens.
As regards the transliteration of historic Greek now we have the procedure suggested by way of the British college at Athens. in response to this all Greek phrases and names are preserved within the Greek types, and in simple terms those who are in universal use are Latinised. it can be notion that we have got Latinised too many names, yet we expect that the standard reader will know Chaeronea extra simply than Chaironeia.
