Conservation & Research
There’s plenty to do beyond our work in the field. What we uncover during each excavation season goes on to be catalogued, conserved, and eventually used for research.
Sharon Stocker and Jack Davis presented an introduction to the Griffin Warrior at the EG XII Conference in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.
A team consisting of researchers from the University of Vienna and Harvard University began studying DNA samples they collected from the Griffin Warrior.
In November, in a Vienna workshop focused on the destructions of the Mycenaean palaces, Salvatore Vitale, Sharon Stocker, and Jack Davis presented relevant evidence for the catastrophes that affected the Palace of Nestor and its LH IIIA predecessor during the 14th and the early 12th century B.C.E. Within this contribution, they provided a refined dating for these events, as well as a methodological case study concerning the use of pottery for chronology within its broader archaeological context.
