Photography and Archives

Photography is an excellent medium to record and illustrate quickly and objectively the archaeological record. Archaeological photography can be broadly divided into two categories; record photography of the actual excavations and object photography.

Stored in the Agora excavation photographic archives are several hundred thousand negatives and images that document work since 1931. Traditionally archaeological photography has been shot with black and white film, but color photography and more recently digital imaging are increasingly being used.

Photographs and slides can be ordered for study, lecture and publication purposes by contacting us. Orders are sent immediately after payment is made. Charges for postage and handling are also added.
