My first involvement withwas in 2005 when I started the MA in Experimental Archaeology at University of Exeter. I completed the MA with Distinction and continued to complete a PhD (Exeter, 2011) using experimental archaeology as a major component of my thesis. I have published a number of articles which address or make use of experimental archaeology and my current research at UvA is explicitly dependent on further experiments.
One of my successes has been in identifying the presence of a combinationin Cretan and Cypriot potting. Rather than building pottery wheels and starting to wheel throw vessels, my research has shown that the combination technique of wheel coiling was used - potters used rotation in differing proportions to complete the of partially coil-built pots.
