Zoi Tsirtsoni

Zoi TsirtsoniZoï Tsirtsoni is Researcher at the French National Centre of Scientific Research (CNRS), presently in position at the laboratory Archéologies et Sciences de l'Antiquité at Nanterre (UMR 7041). She is a specialist of the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods in the Northern Aegean and the Balkans, and co-director of the current Greek-French research project at the multilayer (tell) settlement of Dikili Tash in Greek Eastern Macedonia (www.dikili-tash.fr and www.dikili-tash.gr ). Her main research topics include pottery (morphology, technology, function), but also chronology (relative and absolute) and settlement. In several works, she addressed the question of the relation between the vessels’ shape and the possible cooking function, especially in cases where specific attributes such as legs or pedestals are present. This and other questions should find an answer through the investigations conducted in the framework of the “PlantCult” program, where she participates as coordinator of the pottery studies.
