The training course "Archaeological and Archaeometric Approaches to Ceramics" took place in Lyon this year on 29 May - 2 June 2017 and focused on pottery of the Byzantine world and the medieval Middle-East. It proposed some 20 researchers and students, from all over France and beyond, both a methodological overview, and a theoretical and practical introduction to Byzantine and other medieval Eastern Mediterranean pottery through the handling of sherds and the observation of fabrics. Archaeological sherds were complemented by replicas and 3D models of "best examples" from reference collections (Athens Agora, Museum and Ephorates of Thebes and Chalcis, etc.).
The course presented the latest results of research carried out in the framework of the POMEDOR project.

The workshop was labeled "National Training Action" (Action Nationale de Formation) by the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS).
