Books & Offprints


Cretan Pictographs and Prae-Phoenician Script (1895). With this publication Evans solidified his view regarding the existence of at least two different systems of writing on the island of Crete, both of which dated long before the introduction of the alphabet.

This section contains about 50 articles and books and a number of volumes of the Palace of Minos kept in the archive room. Evans's library of books, offprints and articles were incorporated in the Ashmolean Library (now the Sackler Library) (more than 500 individual titles).
