The Sphakia Survey


The Sphakia Survey is an interdisciplinary archaeological project whose main objective is to reconstruct the sequence of human activity in a remote and rugged part of Crete (Greece), from the time that people arrived in the area, by ca 3000 BC, until the end of Ottoman rule in AD 1900. Our research covers three major epochs, Prehistoric, Graeco-Roman, and Byzantine-Venetian-Turkish, and has involved the work of many people using environmental,archaeological, documentary, and local information.

Grave of the “Griffin Warrior”, Palace of Nestor, Pylos, Greece


Centuries before the destruction of the Mycenaean palaces, a warrior died and was buried alone near the site of the later “Palace of Nestor at Pylos.” His burial was accompanied by one of the most magnificent displays of wealth discovered in Greece in recent decades. The character of the objects that followed him to the afterlife prove that this part of Greece, like Mycenae, was being indelibly shaped by close contact with Crete. This was the time of the very birth of European civilization.

Osirisnet. Tombs of ancient Egypt


The aim of our project is to gather photographs from the greatest possible number of known and less well-known tombs and mastabas, so as to represent them as completely as possible, and to put them freely at the disposal of all on the site. Thus the problems mentioned above will be avoided, and some splendid but ignored monuments could, with full safety, be revealed to the public.

The Library of Congress – Rare Book & Special Collections


The Rare Book and Special Collections Division traces its beginnings to Thomas Jefferson’s wish to create a library for statesmen and for the people of the new nation. After the British burned the Capitol and its library in 1814, Jefferson offered to sell his book collection to Congress. Congress appropriated money for the purchase, and Jefferson's collection served as the foundation for the new Library of Congress in 1815.
