Scope and content
Papers and correspondence relating to materials unpublished at the death of Sir Arthur Evans, PSA, in 1941. Scripta Minoa, I, was published in 1909 and Sir Arthur had planned volumes on Linear A and Linear B, and an atlas of Knossian Antiquities. Work was continued by Sir John Myres, FSA, who published the Linear B inscriptions in Scripta Minoa, II (1952). The several changes of plan regarding the publication of the Linear A material are recorded in SCR/002, SCR/003 below. The publication in 1945 of G. Pugliese Carratelli's edition of Linear A inscriptions, and research and discoveries by others were factors which led to the abandonment of the projected publication in Archaeologia (see SCR/001). A shortened version by W. C. Brice was published as Inscriptions in the Minoan Linear Script of Class A (Society of Antiquaries, 1961).
