We are very pleased to announce a workshop in honour of Professor Christopher Mee to be held at the British School at Athens on 18-19 September 2017.

Monday 18th September


19.00. Keynote lecture.

Bill Cavanagh and Josette Renard.
Tradition, transition and the impact of the new in Neolithic Greece.


Abstract. Chris Mee had a life-long engagement with pottery studies, think of the Bronze Age Dodecanese, his work on Cypriot antiquities, survey pottery from Methana and Laconia. A precious legacy that he left us, his co-directors of the Kouphovouno Project, was his work on the ceramics. Shortly before his untimely death, ‘The Middle–Late Neolithic Transition at Kouphovouno’ was published. It is our intention to develop further the ideas he put forward in that article and to reflect on the nature of tradition and innovation in a Neolithic community.
