Custodial History

Previous reference 'Mycenae Archive' x039 Birmingham transfer Brown Curver Box Originally held in D. H. F. Gray's personal library in her rooms in St. Hugh's College at Oxford University. After her death, it was given to the section of the Mycenae Archive then under the aegis of Drs. K. and D. Wardle, with other of her books. Diana Wardle believes this to be the fair copy done on site shortly after the rough notes notebook was written.

Existence and Location of Originals

This is a tidy copy made on site of original rough notes made by D.H.F. Gray in a notebook also held in this archive, MCNE-1-1-27.
