This fall Antigoni Kalara began work on her dissertation for the Dept. of History and Archaeology at the University of Athens under the supervision of Prof. Yiannis Papadatos. She had only planned to stay a few weeks before realizing it was safer to continue working in Pacheia Ammos than return to Athens, which was hard hit by the second wave of the pandemic. The focus of her thesis is the Protopalatial pottery from the peak sanctuary at Pantotinou Koryphi and the Neopalatial pottery from the peak sanctuary at Stavromenos northwest of Ierapetra (shown above). Her study aims to shed light on the activities at each sanctuary, as well as the technology of manufacture and the origin of the vessels, which should act as markers for estimating the region served by each site. By comparing these Protopalatial and Neopalatial contexts, her analysis will also trace diachronic changes in the local ritual landscape.
