This past month I've put three linked posts on Ure Routes relating to my continuing research in the documents in filing cabinets that comprise the Museum archives.
The first post was an initial description of the main contents of the Museum archive, which included a list of archaeologists (of various nationalities) who are represented among the files. You can read "Ure Museum Archives: An Initial Description" here.
The second post contextualises one part of the archive – the notebooks and correspondence relating to excavations at Rhitsona, Greece in 1907-8. In date-terms, this material is among the earliest in the Museum archive. You can read "From the Archive: The Road to Mykalessos" here.
The third post is a biographical one, providing information about one of the people who worked on site at Rhitsona during the 1907/08 excavation. Grace Holding was a Classics Mistress at a well-known girls' school in London, but also among one of the British women involved in archaeology in Greece. Letters from her during this period are now held in the Ure Museum archive.
Although the work that Grace Holding did at Rhitsona was published, she wouldn't be considered 'notable' enough to merit inclusion on Wikipedia (an ongoing problem that extends to much more 'notable' women). So I decided to put what I was able to find together to make a Wikipedia-like biography for her on Ure Routes. Luckily, with the help of the Ure's Assistant Curator Jayne Holly, and the extent issues of the North London Collegiate School magazine, I was able to find out a fair amount! You can read "Grace Ernestine Holding (c. 1873-1943)" here.
