Welcome to SETinSTONE

3 February 2020

We are very happy to congratulate Daniel Turner and Yannick Boswinkel on submitting their PhD theses within the SETinSTONE project!

Daniel’s dissertation is titled Grave Reminders: Comparing Mycenaean tomb building with energetics and memory, while Yannick’s thesis is about Labouring with large stones. A study into the construction of fortifications in Late Bronze Age Greece. Their work will contribute to our understanding of Mycenaean funerary practices and the structuring of Mycenaean communities.

Daniel furthermore received an OIKOS grant to investigate Greek monumental architecture from a psychological perspective. Read about it here.


From 2015 until 2020 the project SETinSTONE will be performed at Leiden University.
