Wine, oil, and knowledge in the Cyclades

Wine, oil, and knowledge in the Cyclades

 
 
 
 

Since 2019 this project has completed targeted surveys across the Cycladic islands to better understand where, how, by who, and in what networks wine and oil were produced from the Hellenistic through to Late Antique and Byzantine eras. This region, at the crossroads of the eastern Mediterranean basin, clearly produced significant quantities of these products (evidenced by amphorae stretching across the Mediterranean and kiln sites on Cycladic islands) but ancient production facilities are little known, unstudied, and poorly understood.

Led by the BSR, and in collaboration with the British School at Athens, its Fitch Laboratory, and the Australian Archaeological Institute at Athens, this project uses traditional and cutting-edge techniques to holistically analyse these facilities, including surface survey, geophysical prospection, drone photogrammetry, lithic petrography, and organic residue analysis.
