In the Odyssey the Greek hero Nestor returned safely to Pylos. Today Mycenean Pylos is an important archaeological site located on the western coast of the Peloponnese in Greece. Carl Blegen first excavated the site in 1952 and identified the palace found there as the Palace of Nestor. Work on the Linear B tablets from Pylos is on-going. Dr. Kevin Pluta and Dimitri Nakassis have been selected to direct the publication of the Linear B tablets from Pylos. This will involve the production of three-dimensional images of the tablets, using multiple 3d imaging techniques. These images, along with a revised and re-edited commentary, will be published as Palace of Nestor IV.
