Personal profile

Research interests

My main field of research is Aegean Bronze Age archaeology, especially Minoan Crete.  My research interests include mainstream archaeological work (eg.archaeological field-work and the study of artefacts, especially ceramics), the history of scholarship, and the reception of the Minoans (i.e. modern responses to the material culture of Minoan Crete). 

I have directed or co-directed archaeological projects both in Crete and Turkey (Knossos, Iasos, Çaltilar, Eceler, and Palaikastro).  I am currently Deputy Director of the excavations at Palaikastro, East Crete (P.I. Professor Carl Knappett, University of Toronto; Environmental Director Dr. Alexandra Livarda, University of Nottingham). I have acted as scientific advisor to museum exhibitions, such as La Grèce des origines : entre rêve et archéologie at the Musée d'Archéologie Nationale, Châteu Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Paris,(October 2014- February 2015) and the project 'Heirs to the Throne' at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Germany (ongoing). 

Research supervision

I am interested in supervising students who want to explore Aegean Bronze Age topics close to my own research interests (especially themes related to the history of Aegean scholarship, the archaeology of Knossos, the relationship between Crete and Anatolia, the relationship between the Aegean Bronze Age and Classics, etc.). But I also welcome research proposal on other Aegean Bronze Age subjects.

Postgraduate topics I have supervised so far include: Agean Prehistory from the Renaissance to Schliemann; Aegean Bronze Age collections in Bristol; the Late Bronze Age-Early Iron Age settlement of Kynos; the Myceneanization of Sicily, Southern Italy, Macedonia and Anatolia; the iconography and symbolism of bees in the Near Eastern and Minoan worlds; and modelling the volcanic eruption of Santorini (co-supervision with colleagues in Earth Sciences); Minoan religious symbols.
