Bean and the Milesian Peninsula

An archive of Bean’s letters and photographs are today held by the Museum of Classical Archaeology in Cambridge. There are only a few photographs in the archive from the Milesian peninsula. The concentration of German archaeological expeditions in the area perhaps made it a less attractive area for study.
