Azoria Project Archive
Creators: Donald C. Haggis, Azoria Project staff
The Azoria Project Archive is a collection of original documents and publications generated from fieldwork and research of the Azoria Project, an excavation of the Department of Classics and the Research Laboratories of Archaeology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Azoria is an Early Iron Age and Archaic site in eastern Crete, originally explored by Harriet Boyd Hawes for the American School of Classical Studies at Athens in 1900. Subsequent work at the site (the Azoria Project) has been conducted annually since 2001, including phases of topographical survey (2001); excavation (2002-2006); site conservation (2003-2008); and study and publication (2007-2012). The documents in this collection comprise an archive of original field notes, excavation notebooks, stratigraphic sections, manuscript drafts, artifact catalogs, and illustrations (plans, drawings, maps, and photographs) produced by this research project.
