Vounous Symposium 2019

The 3rd Vounous Symposium is going wonderfully well. We have been doing experiments with creating faience, including making it from locally resourced materials. Bronze casting is also underway. We have three furnaces this year, my little pit furnace from last year, one that is self drafting and one short shaft furnace. The above photo is a replica of a dagger we saw at the Museum of Archaeology and Nature, Gurzelyurt ( Morphou). We’ve also cast daggers that are replicas of one that was found here at Vounous.

I wrote a short article for EXARC about last year’s Vounous Symposium. You can read it here.
