The Plainware Pottery and Utilitarian Items from the Tektas Burnu Classical Greek Shipwreck

Summer research and writing on Ancient History, Archaeology and Classics.

This project analyzes and prepares for publication the corpus of crew materials on board the Classical Greek merchant ship that wrecked at Tektas Burnu, Turkey in the late fifth century B.C.E. The corpus includes cooking pots, dining and drinking vessels, fishing equipment, and gaming pieces. In addition to providing evidence on the size of the crew and possible ports of call, the study of these artifacts and their archaeological context on the seabed sheds light on shipboard life and the adaptation of social customs for life at sea. This stipend will support my travel and summer residency in Bodrum, Turkey as I work in the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology to measure, photograph, sample, and record some seventy artifacts that are housed and protected at the museum. These artifacts are the last objects to be studied and included in the chapters on plainware pottery and utilitarian objects which I am authoring for the final publication of theTektas Burnu shipwreck excavation.
