Letter from John Chadwick re reviews of 'Documents' ('Documents in Mycenaean Greek'), 1957-02-20

Reference Code: GBR/3437/AJBW/2/1/4/3

Scope and Contents

Chadwick thanks Wace for the jar measurements and suggests a thorough investigation of the different sizes and their relations to metric signs. He then discusses responses to Documents, focusing on Beattie's refusal to accept that Linear B is Greek. He ends with a discussion of some tablet fragments found at Knossos, which list types of armour and suggests Greek equivalents for some Linear B terms.
