The Laconia Survey Project

The Laconia Survey Project
Graham Shipley, W G Cavanagh, J H Crouwel, Charles Crowther, Fréderique Landuyt
Between 1983 and 1989 a joint team from the British School at Athens and the Universities of Amsterdam and Nottingham carried out an intensive survey of a 70 sq. km. area of Laconia across the Eurotas river to the east of the ancient site of Sparta. In the course of the survey new and previously-known inscriptions were recorded. This archive, along with the project website, is intended to serve as a complement to G. Shipley's catalogue of epigraphical finds in the survey publication by offering digitised images of squeezes and published photographs of the inscriptions.

Digitisation of photographs and squeezes was carried out by Frédérique Landuyt, who also created the project website under the direction of Graham Shipley and Charles Crowther.
