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 to gather in a handy shape all of the archaeological facts as but on hand for the prehistoric interval in North-Eastern Greece. Chapters I - X, that are merely descriptive, include complete money owed of our personal excavations with a precis of the discoveries of others. those we are hoping may be of everlasting price, yet how some distance the theories recommend within the different chapters should be justified time on my own can show.

Our personal excavations in North Greece have all been performed below the aegis of the British college at Athens, of which we're scholars. Our courses 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 principal Europe," T. E. Peet, A. J. B. W., M. S. T., Classical assessment, 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 evaluation, 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 examine Committee of the Royal Geographical Society, and has been released within the Geographical magazine, Vol. XXXVII, pp. 631 ff. of those guides these giving studies of our excavations are outdated via the current paintings, and the perspectives expressed within the different papers are to be transformed in response to Chapters XI - XVII and Appendix I. Mr Droop's enforced absence considering 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 tuition at Athens.

As regards the transliteration of historical Greek we now have the method urged by means of the British tuition at Athens. based on this all Greek phrases and names are preserved within the Greek kinds, and merely those who are in universal use are Latinised. it can be inspiration that we've got Latinised too many names, yet we expect that the normal reader will recognize Chaeronea extra simply than Chaironeia.
