Palaikastro is an important urban centre in the very east of the island of Crete, excavated by the British School at Athens. J. Driessen has worked at this site since the inception of the new excavations in 1983 and has been closely associated ever since, especially where architectural studies are concerned. Tim Cunningham is very much occupied with the publication of Building 1 and of Area 6 – the latter in close collaboration with Prof. Carl Knappett of the University of Toronto who was on sabbatical at the UCL during much of the winter of 2007-2008. Charlotte Langohr and Quentin Letesson are also involved in the publication of Building 7 and Maud Devolder is involved in the publication of Building 5, two of the forthcoming publications.
