Professor John Bennet, Archaeologist and Director of the British School of Athens, leads us on a journey of discovery through Minoan and Mycenaean art and civilization in the Bronze Age Aegean. What is contained in their mysterious Linear A & B writings? What influenced the artistic aesthetic of their very modern frescoes? Were the Minoans linked to the fabled story of Atlantis?   John Bennet's research focuses on the archaeology of complex societies (particularly the Minoan and Mycenaean cultures of the Bronze Age Aegean), the archaeology and history of Crete, early writing and administrative systems (especially Linear B), and on the Venetian and Ottoman periods in Greece, often explicitly integrating material and textual evidence.  His further interest in diachronic regional studies has been developed through fieldwork in Crete (Knossos; Phaistos region; Chania region), mainland Greece (Pylos region) and the islands (Keos; Kythera). As Director of The British School of Athens, he co-edits the BSA Annual and compiles the annual Archaeology in Greece bulletin for Archaeological Reports. As a professor he has taught in the Universities of Cambridge, Wisconsin–Madison and Oxford and currently holds a Chair in Aegean Archaeology at the University of Sheffield. Follow us @lindseycalla
