The Work of the School in 2019 by Professor John Bennet
The Work of the Fitch Laboratory 2009-2019: Linking Britain with the Mediterranean by Dr Evangelia Kiriatzi (Fitch Laboratory Director, BSA)
The Marc and Ismene Fitch Laboratory was founded over 45 years ago within the British School at Athens to promote the application of scientific techniques in archaeological research in Greece. In 2009-10, a generous donation by a long-lasting supporter of the institution enabled the establishment of a new Analytical Chemistry Unit and an overall refurbishment programme, marking the beginning of a new phase in the Laboratory’s history. Since then, an ambitious programme of research and training has been developed through a rapidly growing network of international collaborations. All these developments are briefly reviewed emphasising the Fitch’s current research results and impact on the field, as well as outlining future prospects.
