The First ‘European’ Writing: Redefining the Archanes Script

Oxford Journal of Archaeology 37.4 (2018): 341-372

Early Helladic I and Talioti Pottery: Is it just a phase we’re going through?

Oxford Journal of Archaeology 39.1 (2020): 19-40

It presents the results of an integrated methodology that addresses questions relating to the potential sources of raw materials, the identification of potting practices, and the exchange of such vessels during the Early Bronze Age period.
