Letter from Vronwy Fisher re her recent work and activities , 1939-02-23

 Item
Reference Code: GBR/3437/AJBW/2/1/7/1

Scope and Contents

Fisher begins by apologising for misleading AJBW about the size of the tholos. She updates Wace on the publication of the tholos and says that she will be doing the small finds. She then updates Wace on her activities in Athens and describes a kouros found in the agora in great detail. She puzzles over the use of moulds in archaic Greece. Fisher then discusses her work in Euboea: she has not been able to go to Chalkis yet, but she lists examples of prehistoric evidence from the area. She discusses several recent publications and finds from Mycenaean tombs, then details her travel plans for the coming months.

The letter includes several photographs of the tholos: most of these are labelled.
