Fieldwork

Excavations and project management

I have been involved in fieldwork since the mid 1990s, and have had the privelage to work with, and learn from, excellent archaeologists in both the commercial and academic sectors. Two projects that have been particularly important for me are the excavations by Colin Renfrew's team at the island of Keros and my own excavations at Priniatikos Pyrgos. A new and exciting project I embarked on with colleagues from Belgrade in 2015 is the investigation of the site of Idjos in Serbia.
