Associating residues and wear traces as indicators of hafting methods: Α view from the chipped stone industries from the island of Gavdos, Crete

In J. Marreiros, N. Bicho, J.F. Gibaja (eds), International Conference on Use-Wear Analysis. Use-Wear 2012 (Cambridge 2014): 714-726

Macroscopic and microscopic analysis of a sample of flint and obsidian artefacts from an excavated area with LN/FN/EB finds on the island of Gavdos has revealed use-wear traces and organic residues, very possibly of the hafting arrangement, on a black flint tool which appears to be the hafted element of a sickle.

Middle Pleistocene sea-crossings in the eastern Mediterranean?

Journal of Anthropological Archaeology 42 (2016): 140–153

Lower and Middle Palaeolithic artifacts on Greek islands separated from the mainland in the Middle and Upper Pleistocene may be proxy evidence for maritime activity in the eastern Mediterranean.

The Mainland Bronze Age

Pharos 20 (2014): 145-161

This paper focuses on the Helladic region of Bronze Age Greece, taking in the southern Greek mainland and the nearest islands, but also pays some attention to Mycenaean connections and exchange activity outside this region, particularly beyond the Aegean, since these have a considerable bearing on our understanding of Mycenaean civilisation.

Telling stories: The Mycenaean origins of the Philistines

Oxford Journal of Archaeology 34.1 (2015): 45-65

The story of the Philistines as Mycenaean or Aegean migrants, refugees who fled the Aegean after the collapse of the palace societies c. 1200 BC, bringing an Aegean culture and practices to the Eastern Mediterranean, is well known.

The Early Iron Age at Troy reconsidered

Oxford Journal of Archaeology 33.3 (2014): 275–312

Mycenaean burnt animal sacrifice at Eleusis

Oxford Journal of Archaeology 33.3 (2014): 257-273

Burnt animal sacrifice is well attested in Greek historical times, but whether it was practiced in the Mycenaean period is debated.

New archaeological sites and find on Zakynthos

Pharos 19 (2013): 127-159

The archaeology on Zakynthos is less well-known than that on the other Ionian islands. Partly, this is the result of a lack of archaeological research and partly because the archaeological record on the island shows a high degree of destruction and fragmentation.
