Department of Archaeology

 

My main research topic is the Linear B writing system, used to write Greek in the Mycenaean palaces of Crete and mainland Greece during the Late Bronze Age (c.1400-1200 BCE). I am particularly interested in the structure and development of the writing system itself, as well as the ways in which it was used by the scribes responsible for the Mycenaean palaces' administrative documents. My current research project focuses on analysing the writing practices of the scribes working in the palace of Pylos (south-western Greece), including features such as spelling variation and the ways in which scribes edited their texts, in order to gain a better understanding of their work and interactions.
