The Warwick team catalogued, explored issues related to Roman economic restructuring in Greece through the recording and analysis of the archaeological remains of a 1st Century BC pottery kiln at the ancient site of Knossos on the island of Crete.
What was the most exciting part of your project?
Working with 2,000-year-old unstudied artefacts in the world-leading Knossos Research Centre on Crete
What did co-creation look like in your project?
Teamwork was at the core of this project, the PI (Trainor) and the student researchers from Warwick worked together to record/analyse the ancient artefacts, while the students created a video to document of their experience.
What is your biggest learning from this project?
Co-creation is an extremely effective mechanism for achieving important research results, while also providing unique learning pathways and a suite of transferable skills for students.
What did IATL’s support mean to you?
IATL’s support was instrumental for the implementation of this project – without this support the project simply could not have gone ahead.
