Área de notas


  • Two rolls containing the original maps, plans and drawings for Crawsford's 'Castles and Churches in the Middle Nile region' (published 1953) were presented by Crawford along with the 'Fung Kingdom' material. These rolls inventoried as 'Roll I' and 'Roll II' are not in the archive.
  • Presumably transferred elsewhere, but not able to find documentation confirming this. The Bodleian and Ashmolean have Crawford material but are not able to identify this group within their respective holdings:
    • Many of Crawford's papers are now in Bodleian Special Collections, and they have the proofs for 'Castles and Churches'. See (accessed 21/04/23). Original drawings not mentioned;
    • The Sackler Library is listed as having Crawford's archaeological photographs (presumably British aerial archaeology photos), but nothing is listed for 'Castles and Churches'.
