Collection: Well Built Mycenae The Helleno British Excavations within the Citadel at Mycenae, 1959–1969

edited by W. D. Taylour, E. B. French, K. A. Wardle under the auspices of the British School at Athens.

Well Built Mycenae was established as a series to publish the joint Helleno-British excavations at Mycenae directed by Lord William Taylour between 1959 and 1969 which focused on the Citadel House Area. The series takes into account all of the material found during the seven seasons and thematically covers different aspects of the excavations in dedicated fascicules, such as architecture of different periods, types of finds and technical analyses. As of 2021, when publication of the series passed to Archaeopress, ten fascicules had been published; several more are in preparation. Previous fascicules will be made available in free to download digital editions through the Archaeopress website. A full list may be found below:
