Coulson reading in a Cretan cafe.
After the loss of professor W.D.E. Coulson in 2001, the Department of History, Archaeology and Social Anthropology of the University of Thessaly and the Laboratory of Archaeology, had the honour to receive as a donation by his widow, Mrs Elisabeth Kontidou, his personal archives and library, in 2005.
The archives have been classified and are kept in the Laboratory of Archaeology and are accessible to researchers who wish to consult them. The majority of the books of W.D.E. Coulson's library are in the Main Library of the University of Thessaly, while the doubles, all the off-prints and the series of periodicals are now kept in the library of the Laboratory of Archaeology.
