Project Megalopolis Excavation 1890-1893
Scope and Content An image probably of the BSA excavations at Megalopolis 1890-1893. The original description in the SPHS register reads: "Megalopolis: Thersileion and bridge".
Notes Date based on the BSA excavations at Megalopolis, under the direction of E.A. Gardner (then director of the BSA), and the clearing of the Thersilion in 1893 (Director's report in the 1892-1893 "Annual Meeting of Subscribers"). The label number does not appear to coordinate with any of the 1897 slide catalogue descriptions.. A small paper label is attached with crossed out number "Za5".
