Dr. Jerolyn is an anthropologist/archaeologist and potter who use these disciplines to teach people about Minoan culture. In 1997 she traveled to Chania, Crete to learned how to collect and process raw clay to make pots with her mentor Jennifer Moody, who was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship for her archaeological and environmental work on Crete. Every year since, Jerolyn has returned to explore the island by working on archaeological projects, until 2006 when she moved to Ierapetra from the United States of America. In 2007, Jerolyn was awarded a Fulbright grant to explore ancient cooking on Crete. The program she developed replicated the shape of Minoan cooking pots from the same type of clay and manufacturing techniques that the ancient potters used. To learn how ancient people cooked food in these pots recipes were created that used only the foods that were available in Crete during the Minoan period. This project is continuously evolving and collaborating with local organizations and supporters to establish a conscious-minded business that is dedicated to Cretan cultural heritage and education.
