  • (B-2-8) The Socio-political Production of Minoan and Mycenaean Architecture. An Energetic Perspective

    The Minoan and Mycenaean socio-political systems share many trends due to the interactions between their respective societies, but the archaeological record also testifies marked differences. This research project investigated the processes at play in the development of these distinct socio-political systems by focusing on the management of architectural production and by quantifying the impact of monumental architecture on these societies.

  • (B-2-9) Energetics Calculator for Ancient Buildings

    This project examines cost-calculation-algorithms which can be applied to the volumes of ancient architecture to explore the temporal, material or energetic ‘cost’ of the steps of that process. Up to now this has been done on an ad-hoc basis, with scholars finding appropriate comparisons. Within this project an online interactive interface  where scholars enter volumetric data from their research is developed.
