Michael Ventris Memorial

Michael Ventris was an architect who, along with two others, deciphered Linear B, a previously unknown ancient script discovered at Knossos.  In recognition of his work, Ventris was awarded an OBE in 1955 but sadly died a year later at the age of just 34.  In an attempt to commemorate his life and work in perpetuity, his friends made a public appeal for donations and the resulting money raised was used to create the Michael Ventris Memorial Trust.

The Trust is overseen by the Ventris Trust Committee, which is comprised of members from the University of London and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
