Knossos: From Migrant Camp to Mega-city: Urbanisation at Ancient Knossos
25 January 2021
A fully funded PhD studentship on the above topic is available in the department of Classics and Ancient History (University of Bristol) in collaboration with the University of Cardiff and the British School at Athens.
Under the supervision of Profs Nicoletta Momigliano (Bristol), James Whitley (Cardiff), and John Bennet (British School at Athens) the student on this CDA project will investigate aspects of urbanisation at Knossos – one of the most significant ancient Mediterranean cities, and the second most visited archaeological site in Greece today – through research on one area within its urban landscape. How this area developed and functioned within the Knossian urban landscape will be investigated through a study of archaeological materials selected from the excavations by Arthur Evans and his successors, which have remained unpublished or have been published in only a summary fashion.
