Antonis Kotsonas is a Classical Archaeologist specializing in the material culture, socio-cultural and economic history of the Early Iron Age and the Archaic period in Greece and the Mediterranean. His research interests extend, however, from the Late Bronze Age to the Roman period. He has conducted fieldwork and finds reserach on Crete, and in the Cyclades, Euboea and Macedonia; and comparative studies across the Aegean, and from Italy to Cyprus, engaging problems in state formation, trade and interaction, identity and commensality, memory, and the history of archaeology.
Kotsonas is the author of: The Archaeology of tomb A1K1 of Orthi Petra in Eleutherna: The Early Iron Age Pottery (Athens 2008); Methone Pierias I: Inscriptions, graffiti and trademarks on Geometric and Archaic pottery from the ‘Hypogeion’ of Methone Pierias in Macedonia (in Greek, with M. Bessios and Y. Tzifopoulos) (Thessaloniki 2012); Understanding standardization and variation in Mediterranean ceramics: mid 2nd to late 1st millennium BC (Leuven 2014). He is currently finishing co-editing with I.S. Lemos A Companion to the Archaeology of early Greece and the Mediterranean (Wiley Blackwell).
Before coming to Cincinnati, Kotsonas worked at King’s College London, the University of Crete, the University of Amsterdam and the University of Edinburgh. He has also served as a Curator of Greek Archaeology at the Allard Pierson Museum, Amsterdam.
