Publication of new finds
In the last 30 years, a considerable number of new seals (over 1500) which haven't yet been included in the CMS series have come to light in the Aegean. Our aim is to continue work on the documentation and publication of new finds, thus continuing the example of the CMS Marburg which produced an indispensable tool for the study of Aegean Bronze Age (resolutions: Cretological Congress 2006, DAIS 2008).
The first step towards the completion of this goal is work on the publication in the CMS Series of all seals that are kept at the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion and have not yet been included in it. The publication of this material will take place in the frames of the project Minoische Siegelglyptik zwischen corpusartiger Erfassung und 3D-Forensik. Eine multidisziplinäre Dokumentation von 900 unpublizierten Siegeln aus dem Archäologischen Museum von Heraklion which is funded by the DFG.
