Judith Gatt - 2021 - University of Aix-Marseille PhD Scholar
In 2019 I graduated from the Department of History & Archaeology at the University of Cyprus and in June 2021 I completed my master’s degree at Aix-Marseille University in Maritime and Coastal archaeology with the support of the Honor Frost Foundation (more information is here). I have participated in terrestrial and underwater excavations and surveys in Cyprus, Greece and France. Currently, I am a PhD Honor Frost Scholar at Aix-Marseille University and the University of Cyprus.
My main research interests concern harbour archaeology and more specifically the construction techniques of harbour works of the Classical and Hellenistic period, coastal geomorphology and geoarchaeology. In the framework of my PhD I aim in continuing my research on the Classical and Hellenistic harbours of Cyprus on a multidisciplinary level by studying in detail the construction techniques of their harbour works in comparison with those of the eastern Mediterranean and the Aegean, the supply chain of their building material and the diachronic development of their surrounding coastal landscape.
