This series contains notebooks kept by Alan Wace between c.1903 and 1937. Mostly undated, many notebooks contain jotted notes on places, particularly archaeological sites, visited during his travels and notes on objects in museums. Some of these object focused notebooks are thematic, for example notes on sculptures or Hellenistic portraiture, and may be indexed.
Some excavation notebooks are also included in this series, including notebooks for Thessaly excavations in 1910 and 1912, 1933 Troy excavations and Korakou excavations in 1915 and 1916. Some early Mycenae excavation notes are included in the back of previously used notebooks.
