The Archives and Special Collections of the UC Department of Classics

The holdings of the Archives and Special Collections of the Department of Classics consist of excavation records from sites such as the Palace of Nestor at Pylos and Troy, as well as records from numerous surveys in Greece and Albania.

Beyond excavation and survey records, the Archives contain personal papers and memorabilia of past members of the department, such as Carl W. Blegen, as well as individuals closely affiliated with the department, such as Marion Rawson and Emmett L. Bennett, Jr. They also hold a number of original drawings and paintings by Piet de Jong who often worked with Carl W. Blegen.
