Anna Simandiraki-Grimshaw

A.SimantirakiDr. Anna Simandiraki-Grimshaw is a multilingual archaeologist trained in Greek (Prehistoric, Classical and Byzantine) Archaeology. She specialises in the Aegean Bronze Age, particularly Minoan Crete. Her diverse research interests include ceramics, archaeologies of the body, religion, artefact databases and reception studies, the latter with reference to education and nationalism. Anna teaches Archaeology at the Continuing Education Departments of the Universities of Cambridge, Oxford and Bristol, and Modern Greek at the Foreign Languages Centre, University of Bath.

Petras has been for Anna an absolute delight to work and learn at. Her ongoing connection to the site and its people goes back to the beginning of her archaeological training and career. She first worked at the site when studying Byzantine pottery on behalf of the University of Crete and the Hellenic Institute for Research. She subsequently excavated and studied pottery from Early Minoan strata. More recently, she has been studying the Minoan miniature vessels from the site, which form part of her INSTAP-funded project “Miniature Vessels in Minoan Crete”.
