Antonín Salač and the French School at Athens
Thea De Armond

Picard’s tenure as director of the school (between 1919 and 1925), its Foreign Section was uniquely diverse (that is, with respect to nationality). Membres étrangers hailed from Sweden, Denmark, Russia, Poland, Romania, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland and, of course, Czechoslovakia. No other director in the history of the French School has presided over so diverse a Foreign Section as did Picard; Pierre Roussel’s subsequent directorship saw the Foreign Section dominated by Belgium and the Netherlands once more. This diversity was in line with French cultural

of source material, I believe that it is possible to pinpoint factors that contributed to the formation of a scholarly network, and to reconstruct the most important features of the research processes and work of Montelius and his colleagues. Analysis of archive sources has made it clear that it is of great importance to study the nationalities, geographical locations and relations between the actors, rather than ‘just’ the specific discoveries and archaeological data, to understand how knowledge was produced and disseminated.

as emerging from and being sustained by heterogeneous networks of people, organizations, and knowledge sets. Indeed, considerable research has established that network diversity – in terms of both personal traits such as ethnicity, nationality, or gender, and also professional traits, such as skill-set or disciplinary speciality – leads to novelty, creativity, and innovation (Hofstra et al . 2020 ; Moser and San 2020 ). As discussed in earlier chapters, neither the population in which people operate nor the network that connects them is necessarily purely

reported there was ‘nothing particularly remarkable about the skull’, it having a cranial index of ‘.76’, his colleagues debated vigorously whether this might be a ‘Zealander’ (Shetlander) or Scandinavian, drawing on comparative measurements of long- and short-headed specimens known to them. One member seemed most put out that Hunt’s paper ‘conveyed no idea of the period at which they had been buried, nor of their nationality’, and as the secretary went on to note, ‘these he considered were the whole points of interest in the subject’ (Hunt 1866a : ccvii).
