ABOUT THE TRUST
The Charity was established for the advancement of education by means of promoting research in archaeology, ancient and classical sculpture, monuments and artifacts, archaeological investigation, exploration and excavation - particularly at Aphrodisias and elsewhere in the world - including the dissemination of all information, discoveries and results relating thereto or arising thereon, to the general public in the United Kingdom and elsewhere, through publication, lectures, restoration of ancient marbles and provision of sculpture casts. The Charity is administered on a day to day basis by its Trustees, with the assistance of
volunteers. It has no employees.
Every year we pay for a substantial amount of the research and conservation at Aphrodisias. In particular we support the British members of the Aphrodisias Team which is headed by Professor R.R.R. Smith, Lincoln Professor of Art and Archaeology, Oxford University. In recent years we have financed much of the conservation work carried out under the direction of Trevor Proudfoot, Director of Cliveden Conservation Workshop Ltd.
