Dr. Gloria London
Knud Jensen was a Danish rural police officer with dreams of becoming a Mediterranean archaeologist. To do so he joined the United Nations Peace Keeping Force in Cyprus beginning in 1964. When not on village patrols, he recorded the immense old-fashioned wine fermentation jars littering rural roads. Following a centuries-old practice, itinerant craftsmen made the last jar in 1972. Equipped with superior social and detective skills, he traced pots back to their makers, including a family of jar makers active from 1850 to 1913. Jensen achieved much, but did not live to publish his research, which Dr. London has done with help from his family and the descendants of jar makers.
