PKAP and Cyprus Notes

Three quick hits on PKAP and Cyprus. 

There is a nice feature on Albert Ammerman in the August issue of Science.  The article talks about Ammerman’s controversial work on the early prehistory of Cyprus and mentions Jay Noller, a geologist at Oregon State University, who has worked with PKAP since 2004 and will publish the geology and core samples from Koutsopetria.  Ammerman gave us a hard time a few years back at the CAARI symposium, but we’ve both seem to have recovered from the episode!! 

Scott Moore has posted something on PKAP’s ongoing Second Life project on his Ancient History Ramblings Blog

The PKAP Research Complex and Visitor’s Center is now open to the public.  You can look at photos, browse our reports (in the second floor library), and even read my blog via an RSS Feed.  While it’s great to have a presence a virtual world, we are still trying to get some functional value from it.  It’s going to take time to work out what this interface can do.

Finally, PKAP had a paper accepted at the 17th International Congress of Classical Archaeology, which will meet in Rome next semester.  The paper, “Trade and Exchange in the Eastern Mediterranean: A Model from Cyprus”, will appear in a panel titled: Exchange — The Eastern Mediterranean, and will allow us to bring together many strands of evidence for inter- and intra-regional exchange on our site.
