The Peter Fraser Photographic
and Rhodian Funerary Monuments
|During the 1960s
and 70s Peter Fraser carried out an extensive study in preparation for
his volume Rhodian Funerary Monuments, published in 1977 by
the Clarendon Press, Oxford. The aim of the study was to describe
the main classes of funerary monuments found in Rhodes, and to investigate
some social and religious questions raised by them. Hundreds of
photographs were taken during the course of this study, and the Lexicon
now holds this uniquely comprehensive collection. It includes both those
images used to illustrate the book, and a further collection of Rhodian
landscapes, sites, and other related material, accumulated during the
course of Peter Fraser's work on the island. These
images can be accessed here.
