“Vassilis Politakis has regularly cooperated with the British School at Athens,
lending his expertise to scholars and students alike.
Most recently he participated in a course for graduate students,
which ran at the British School’s facility at Knossos.
He gave lectures on ancient pottery techniques and ran hands-on practical sessions demonstrating those techniques.
The students benefited enormously from his expertise which combined knowledge of the scientific aspects of ancient ceramics, great skill as a potter, a commitment and excitement to explore and replicate ancient techniques, and a flare for presentation.”
