An intensive primer for the study of pottery in Greece

3rd - 15th April 2018

This intensive course gives participants a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience with one of the major pottery sequences in Greece, guided by leading specialists in the field. Based at the British School’s Research Centre at Knossos, it makes use of the rich holdings of the Stratigraphic Museum which include material from across the Mediterranean in all periods from the Neolithic to Late Roman.

The course is primarily intended for postgraduate students wishing to acquire or strengthen vital archaeological skills, but applications from late stage undergraduates with a strong intention to continue their studies will also be considered.  The course fee of £750 includes tuition, teaching materials, room and board (shared accommodation in double rooms with breakfast and some lunch) at the British School’s Research Centre at Knossos, fieldtrip travel expenses, 24-hour access to the Library, and BSA membership. Travel to and from Heraklion is the sole responsibility of the course participant.  

Students are recommended to apply to their universities for assistance with the fees.  A very limited number of bursaries may be available from the BSA for those who would be otherwise unable to attend.  

Application forms can be downloaded from the British School website.  Completed application forms and an academic reference letter (it is the applicant’s responsibility  to ensure that her/his reference is sent) should be emailed to the Knossos Curator Dr Kostis S. Christakis by 15th February 2018 (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). For further information contact the course coordinator Dr Kostis S.
