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.
