Part of the CHS Visiting Artist Presentation Series, this event features Akis Goumas, a contemporary jewelry maker and researcher of ancient crafting technologies in the Aegean. Since 2006 he has been a member of a multidisciplinary team of archaeologists, scientists, and conservators studying Prehistoric metal technologies, Hellenistic gold smithing techniques, and Minoan seal stone engraving. During the presentation, Akis will take the audience on a journey and share the strong links connecting archaeological research projects with his personal creative work.
