I’m a Classics researcher at Cambridge, specialising in studying the Linear B texts – clay tablets from the Mycenaean palaces of Late Bronze Age Greece and Crete (c.1400-1200 BCE), used for administrative records (mainly lists of people, animals, and goods). The language of these texts is an early form of Greek; ‘Linear B’ is what we call the writing system (which is unrelated to the later Greek alphabet).

As well as my research and other aspects of Classics, linguistics, and archaeology, I blog about books, museums, travel, and cake. Especially about cake.
