Martyn Jope's archaeological papers were donated to the Ashmolean by his widow and literary executor. Further documents have recently been discovered by his executor and were deposited at the Ashmolean in October 2003. These have not been included in this project.
The Jope archive totals 907 items of various types. It has been divided into 9 different files, each representing a different archaeological site excavated by Professor Jope in Oxfordshire.
