Myrto Georgakopoulou (1976-2022)

BSA, 16.12.2022

It is with great sorrow and heavy hearts that we note the untimely passing of our dear colleague, valued collaborator and beloved friend, Myrto Georgakopoulou, on December 15, 2022.

Myrto was a long-term member of the Fitch Laboratory team, first as Archaeological Chemistry Fellow (2005-2009), then as the Fitch’s first Scientific Research Officer (2009-2013). Even after she took up a post in UCL-Qatar she remained a close collaborator in a number of Fitch projects. Through her long-running partnership with Vangelio Kiriatzi, she was instrumental in the establishment of the WD-XRF analytical unit at the Fitch and in the integration of elemental and petrographic analysis of ceramics in a series of emblematic projects such as the diachronic study of pottery ceramic landscapes on Aegina and Kythera. She also participated in a number of BSA fieldwork projects, notably the Kato Phana survey on Chios, the Kythera Island Project and the Keros excavations.
