The Åke Åkerström papers record the scholarly career
of this Swedish classical archaeologist. Åkerström’s research interests and publications
ranged from architectural terracottas in Asia Minor to Etruscan tomb typology to
Mycenaean pottery in Greece, and this breadth is reflected in the research notes,
photographs, postcards, drawings, correspondence, manuscripts, and typescripts that
constitute the Åkerström papers. The archive also includes a substantial amount of
material that originated with Lennart Kjellberg and Axel W. Persson, earlier scholars
whose work Åkerström continued.
