Funding for the research was supported by UC's Department of Classics; Boston University; the Archaeological Institute of America; the American School of Classical Studies at Athens; the Malcolm H. Weiner Laboratory for Archaeological Science; and the Fitch Laboratory of the British School at Athens.

The AIA and SCS Joint Annual Meeting draws professional and vocational archaeologists and classicists from around the world to share the latest developments from the field. The conference is the largest and oldest established meeting of classical scholars and archaeologists in North America.

UC's Classics Department in the McMicken College of Arts and Sciences is one of the most active centers for the study of the Greek and Roman Antiquity in the United States. UC excavations have been led at two Bronze Age palaces, one at Knossos on the island of Crete, and at Pylos near Nichoria, a site first discovered by UC archaeologist Carl W. Blegen in 1939.

For more information the above research presentation at 8 a.m., CST, Jan. 9, follow the live tweeting of the AIA session, "The Preservation of Organic Remains in the Aegean" at #AegeanPres, or follow Dibble (@wfdibble) or Fallu (@LookingAtDirt).
