Digging deep into ceramics with forensic and experimental archaeology
Ceramics is one of the most ancient industries. The study of its long history can help further our understanding of knowledge transfer, gender roles and mobility as well as cultural adaptation in antiquity. With this in mind, the EU-funded AGATHOCLES project will explore training models and collaboration networks in one of the ancient world's most dynamic industries. Using archaeometry, computational imaging and other innovative tools, this project will focus on the case study of red-figure workshops in Southern Italy and Sicily (5th–4th century BCE). A highly interdisciplinary approach will include forensic and experimental archaeology as well as digital humanities. Moreover, social network analysis can deeply innovate the methodologies used to identify workshops and provide new procedures to define all the elements that constitute prolific networks such as those of the ceramics industry.
