Michael Cosmopoulos

Prof. Michael Cosmopoulos was elected as a Social Sciences Fellow of the Academy of Science of St. Louis, USA, in February 2014. That same Academy also bestowed him with the honour of the Trustees Award, which recognises the contribution scientists make to the dissemination and understanding of science. This prize is one of the Outstanding Scientists Awards conferred every year by the Academy for exceptional performance in science. The Academy of Science of St. Louis was founded in 1856 and is one of the oldest, most important scientific foundations in the USA. The award ceremony was held at the annual celebratory conference and dinner hosted by the Academy on 9 April 2014.

Michael Cosmopoulos is a Professor of Archaeology, and the Endowed Professor of Hellenic Studies at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, USA. His contribution to the academic discipline of archaeology and the field of Hellenic Studies in the form of numerous books, articles and studies, his teaching work and his excavations, is extensive indeed. His excavations at Iklaina in Messinia brought to light the oldest written record in Europe in Linear B script dating from between 1450 BC and 1300 BC, demonstrating the existence of government bureaucracy and changing everything we thought we knew about the start of organised states up until now.
