The BSA and Egypt: Naukratis Excavation Fund
Just over £187 was raised for the excavation of Naukratis in 1899 by David Hogarth. The main donor was the Society of Dilettanti with £100. The Fitzwilliam and Ashmolean Museums also supported the project (£15 and £10, respectively).
Professor David Gill is Honorary Professor in the Centre for Heritage at the University of Kent, and an Academic Associate in the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures and a member of the Centre for Archaeology and Heritage at the University of East Anglia. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA), a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries (FSA) and a Senior Fellow of Advance HE (formerly HEA).
The History of the British School at Athens forms part of an on-going research project (initially on the period from 1886 until the end of the First World War).
