I delivered invited talks at the University of Leicester (June 2010) and at the University of Cagliari, Sardinia (May 2011).
Nikita, K. 2011. "Glass in the Late Bronze Age Mediterranean: tracing the networks of exchange" (Tracing Networks: Craft Traditions in the Ancient Mediterranean and Beyond, Cagliari, Sardinia, 14th May 2011)
Nikita, K. 2010. "The Glass Industry of Mycenaean Greece: technology, production and economy" (Tracing Networks: Craft Traditions in the Ancient Mediterranean and Beyond, University of Leicester, Leicester, 16th June 2010)
There has been important research exchange amongst all parties. My contribution was on specific aspects of high-temperature technologies and luxury material industries, such as glass and allied vitreous materials. I joined their reading and discussion groups at Leicester on the theory of practice of early industries and the networks of craft interactions.
