Beazley Archive (BA) is a research unit of the Faculty of Classics
under the direction of Dr Donna Kurtz, Reader in
Archaeology (classical) and Fellow of Wolfson College. The original archive of Sir John Beazley, Lincoln Professor of
Classical Archaeology and Art from 1925 until 1956, was purchased for the faculty in 1965. On his death in 1970 it was
brought to the Ashmolean Museum. Within a few years the personal archive of material relating to the study of classical
archaeology and art was transformed into a research resource for students and senior scholars. It consisted of photographs,
notes, drawings, books and impressions from engraved gems. The photographs of Athenian vases are the largest archive of
this class in the world and were the basis of Beazley's life work.
The Dictionary contains illustrated explanations of names, technical terms, and other vocabulary relating to Greek history, myth, geography, art and architecture. It is
constantly being updated and expanded.
