Rachel Sarvey, a second-year Classical Archaeology major at UNC, has been awarded both the Anne L. and S. Epes Robinson Honors Fellowship from Honors Carolina and the Peter Knox Excavation and Field Work Award from the Classical Association of the Middle West and South. The grants support her participation in the Ayios Antonios excavations on Crete this summer, as well as a related independent project exploring the form and history of Early Minoan I-II (ca. 3100-2150 B.C.) settlement in eastern Crete. Excavations at Ayios Antonios will be conducted by the Archaeological Service of Eastern Crete (Ephorate of Antiquities of Lasithi, Archaeological Directorate of the Greek Ministry of Culture and Sports) in collaboration with the Department of Classics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Institute for Aegean Prehistory Study Center for Eastern Crete. Rachel has worked as a research assistant in the Research Laboratories of Archaeology and for Jen Gates-Foster on the Desert Networks Project. She is broadly interested in Greek archaeology, with a research focus in Aegean prehistory.
