The Heraklion Archaeological Museum in collaboration with the ERC research program “INSCRIBE – Invention of Scripts and their Beginnings” of the University of Bologna organizes a Workshop dedicated to the latest research on Cretan hieroglyphic script and Linear A.
The conference on “New Prospects on the Aegean Undeciphered Scripts: Cretan Hieroglyphic and Linear A” will take place on September 23, 2023 in the Events Hall of the Heraklion Archaeological Museum. Recent studies will be presented, which help to shed light on the two oldest writing systems of Minoan Crete by focusing on the epigraphic, linguistic and contextual aspects of written language.
The event is aimed at a wide audience, who will be presented with the past and the future of the research on Minoan writing in its local setting. It is co-organized by Dr. Georgia Flouda, Head of the Department of Prehistoric and Minoan Antiquities, and Professor Silvia Ferrara of Università di Bologna.
The Event is sponsored by the Heraklion Archaeological Museum and the ERC Project INSCRIBE Invention of Scripts and their Beginnings, based in Bologna, which has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program (Grant Agreement No. 771127).
