General collections archive

The general collections archive has grown out of the items collected and donated by researchers since the beginning of the APGRD project, in particular by Oliver Taplin, Edith Hall and Fiona Macintosh. The items come from works of theatre, dance and opera, as well as film, which are based on ancient dramatic and epic texts. The collection has a strong emphasis on 20th-century material but includes material from the 17th century onwards. The records come from both professional and amateur productions in a variety of media, from handwritten and printed materials to audiovisual recordings.
