Hallvard Indgjerd wins Fitch Bursary Award

HallvardHallvard Indgjerd has been awarded the Fitch Bursary Award for 2017-18 from the British School at Athens. Hallvard is working on a study of Late Roman and Byzantine pottery from Naxos and the Lesser Cyclades in Greece, and the award will help fund his petrographic analysis at the Fitch Laboratory in Athens. By looking at thin-sections of ceramic samples through a polarising microscope, we can gain knowledge about clay composition, provenance, production technology, and intended use of the pottery.

Congratulations Hallvard!
