Aybüke Öztürk will defend her PhD thesis in IT, carried out under the supervision of Stéphane Lallich, Jérôme Darmont and Yona Waksman, on July 9th 2018:

"Design, implementation and analysis of a description model for complex archaeological objects"

Aybüke contributed to the POMEDOR project and to the new design of the ceramics database of Lyon laboratory, which is one of the largest database of chemical data of archaeological ceramics in Europe. The new model includes a full description of pottery samples - text description, drawings, photos of objects and of fabrics under the binocular, 3D models... - together with analytical...

of the national training program "Archaeological and Archaeometric Approaches to Ceramics: Byzantine World and Medieval Middle-East" gathered in Lyon 19 participants of Syrian, Iranian, Algerian, Italian and ... French nationality, coming from all over France, as well as from Beyrouth and Florence.

The training included both methodological approaches to ceramics studies, focusing especially on analytical ones (fabrics, petrographic and chemical analysis for provenance and technology studies, residues analysis for studies of contents and uses...), and courses on Byzantine and Eastern Mediterranean medieval pottery, including hands-on on sherds and observations under the binocular, supplemented...

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 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.).

A meeting organized by the "Databases and reference collections" working group of the CAI-RN network of French archaeological scientists gave the opportunity to present ongoing developments in Lyon's ceramics database, one of the largest European one for chemical data of archaeological ceramics. It is presently extended to 2D images and 3D models, with further developments re. data modeling, mining and sharing:

Jean-Jacques has been working with Lyon laboratory in the past, especially on recreation of Roman pottery.

Replicas of Byzantine White Wares (Impressed White Ware, Shafing Dish...), of the main Middle Byzantine Production (Fine Sgraffito, Aegean Ware, Champlevé, Green and Brown Painted Ware, Slip-Painted Ware), and of Zeuxippus Ware, late sgraffito ware, Port-Saint Symeon Ware were made following archaeological models.

They will be used later on as educational material, especially for the...

A Byzantine dinner will be created on the occasion of the POMEDOR conference in May, at the Paul Bocuse Institute in Ecully near Lyon (France).

This event is a joint creation by the food historian and experimental archaeologist Sally Grainger, with the scientific advise of Andrew Dalby and of Ilias Anagnostakis, our POMEDOR colleague and friend, historian of Byzantium with an in-depth insight into food and foodways, together with a team of the Bocuse Institute & School, as representatives of the French gastronomy!

The dinner will be presented by food historian Andrew Dalby.

This event is under the...

The final conference of the POMEDOR project "People, Pottery and Food in the Medieval Eastern Mediterranean", funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR), will take place in Lyon on 19-21 May 2016.


The conference will give us the opportunity to present the results of the program as well as research on related topics, to discuss recent advances and further research.

A large part of the conference will be devoted to food and foodways as may be approached through archaeological and archaeometric studies of pottery, but research using other approaches will be welcome...
