My research at the British School at Athens is an examination of what the consumption of a series of Daedalic terracotta figurines at the Sanctuary of Hera at Perachora can contribute to our understanding of why “orientalising” processes are evident in Perachora’s assemblage (and in the material culture of the local area) and how these processes work. This project builds upon approaches and concerns explored in my doctoral research at the University of Exeter, which addressed Greek interactions with Egyptian and Egyptianising material culture during the Early Iron Age and Archaic Period. My wider research interests include archaic Greek art and material culture (and especially representations of monstrous creatures), Greek historiography, and Ptolemaic Egypt.
