Athanasios Gkaronis

Research student,


I am an archaeologist from Greece. I hold a BA in History, Archaeology and History of Art (Athens University) and an MA in Archaeology (Athens University). During my studies, I took part in University excavation projects while I have worked as a contract archaeologist at the Greek Ministry of Culture in various excavation projects mainly in the Cyclades and the Dodecanese. Since 2019 I have been a member of the Small Cycladic Islands Project (SCIP), an archaeological survey of the small, uninhabited Cycladic islands in the Aegean Sea.

In my thesis I propose to explore the settlement patterns and, through the study of ceramics and using formal network analysis as a methodological tool, the interactions and connectivity between the Cycladic islands as well as between the Cyclades and the rest of the Aegean during the Early Iron Age. For my research purposes, I also have been conducting primary research on the unpublished material from the settlement of Koukounaries, Paros.
