Realm of the Maya. In 2008 I spent two weeks in Central America visiting some of the major archaeological sites of the Maya as well as seeing the sights and people of Guatemala. Here are some of the pictures I took.
The Parthenon Marbles is a site I created together with my class of Advanced English students in Rethymno, Crete in 1997. The first website ever to be created on this subject, it gives the history of the Parthenon Marbles, the positions of the British and Greek governments, the British Museum, and contains lots of other documents as well as photos of the Marbles.
Crete in pictures. I live on the island of Crete and this gives me the opportunity to photograph Crete when it is at its best -- in the winter and early spring.
Karpathos in Pictures contains photos taken mainly in the mountain village of Olympos where women still wear traditional costume in their everyday work, and life is lived in a way that no longer exists in other parts of Greece and is probably destined to die out soon on Karpathos itself. These photos will increasingly take on an historic character.
Rhodes and Symi in Pictures. In 1988 I spent a week on Rhodes and Symi. The pictures I took then are already beginning to take on an historic character as Greece has changed beyond recognition in the last 25 years.
My sites on other servers
Minoan Crete is my most important website. It now contains around 800 photos and 14 HD videos of 60 Minoan archaeological sites in Crete together with a description of each site, site plans and definitions of technical words.
Ian's Home Page contains pages on subjects of interest to me and, I hope, to others. It was created in 1996 when Home Pages were all the rage and as it was my first ever website I have kept the original design!
