presents methodologies used in the POMEDOR project, such as organic residues analysis, petrographic and chemical analysis. The latter is presented by S.Y. Waksman in a contribution including medieval Beirut as a case study, entitled "Provenance" Studies: Productions and Compositional Groups ". Beirut was one of the sites investigated within the framework of the POMEDOR project, building on previous research.

Podcasts of the communications presented at the conference will also be available in the fall 2016.

... were made by Jean-Jacques Dubernard, a potter operating in Rousillon near Lyon, on the special occasion of the Byzantine dinner organized for POMEDOR final conference.
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...

The POMEDOR project is also an opportunity to provide resources for education and research in the field of ceramic studies. 3D scans of complete examples will be taken as representatives for the categories that we studied within the project.
Tests are ongoing on the collection of traditional pottery of the "Laboratoire de Céramologie" in Lyon.

A new POMEDOR intern, Lucie Courbe, is currently working in the framework of her MA Thesis with S.Y. Waksman in Lyon's laboratory, on the Byzantine and Ottoman Pottery Production of Athens.
The material under study comes from the American Excavations in the Athenian Agora and will be published by J.A.C. Vroom (Leiden University) and her team. It gave evidence for pottery manufacture in Athens Agora at the Ottoman period. Lucie will characterize this production by chemical analysis and investigate the hypothesis of an earlier one, typologically related to the MBP (Main Middle Byzantine Pottery, see ...

Within the rapidly expanding area of research on food and foodways, the medieval eastern Mediterranean is still very much an unexplored area. The aim of the POMEDOR project was to explore this new field in a multidisciplinary way and to stimulate further research. Although the project focused primarily on food and foodways approached through archaeological and archaeometric studies of pottery - from transport amphorae to serving dishes, through food processing utensils, cooking wares, and wares used in food production processes - the conference encompassed a wider field, including historical, archaeozoological, archaeobotanical and anthropological studies.

Case studies in Greece, Turkey, Israel,...
