I just finished my first full year as a tenured faculty member at the University of Colorado Boulder in the Department of Classics. I’m working on three major projects. The first is the Western Argolid Regional Project (WARP), a diachronic archaeological survey in the upper reaches of the Inachos river valley, that I co-direct with Sarah James (CU Boulder) and Scott Gallimore (Wilfrid Laurier). Three major seasons of fieldwork (2014-2016) have been completed, and two study seasons will help to bring the project to final publication. The second is the Pylos Tablets Digital Project, co-directed with Kevin Pluta (UT Austin, PASP), which aims to document the administrative documents from the “Palace of Nestor” at Pylos using digital techniques, especially Reflectance Transformation Imaging (RTI), as well as a variety of other methods: macroscopic fabric analysis, X-Ray Fluorescence, traditional illustration, and so on. The third is a book project, tentatively entitled “Mycenaean histories,” whose central thesis is that the notion of a coherent Mycenaean world whose high point (and historical telos) is the palace is deeply problematic.
