Professor of Aegean Studies
Nico’s main field of research is Aegean Bronze Age archaeology, especially Minoan Crete. Her research interests include mainstream archaeological work (e.g. archaeological field-work and the study of artefacts, especially ceramics), the history of scholarship on Minoan Crete, and the reception of the Minoans. She has directed or co-directed archaeological projects both in Crete and Turkey (Knossos, Iasos, Çaltilar, Eceler, and Palaikastro).
She would be happy to give school talks on various topics relevant to the Aegean Bronze Age, including the rediscovery of the Aegean Bronze Age, Homer and Archaeology, Greek myths and Aegean Bronze Age realities.
