Training program "Archaeological and Archaeometric Approaches to Ceramics: Byzantine World and Medieval Middle-East"

Replicas of Byzantine ceramics manufactured by potter Jean-Jacques Dubernard

The training program "Archaeological and Archaeometric Approaches to Ceramics", labeled "National Training Action" (Action Nationale de Formation) by the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), will take place in Lyon on 28 May - 1rst June 2018. It proposes researchers and students both a methodological overview and an introduction to Byzantine and other medieval Eastern Mediterranean pottery. Practical training is proposed with the handling of sherds and the observation of fabrics. Archaeological sherds are complemented by replicas and 3D models of "best examples" from reference collections (Athens Agora, Museum and Ephorates of Thebes and Chalcis, etc.).
The course presents the latest results of research carried out in the framework of the POMEDOR project.
