Training and research in premodern plasters and ceramics
Premodern plasters and ceramics are the first synthetic materials that humankind has produced. The EU-funded PlaCe project is a pioneering interdisciplinary European training network (ETN) that will train-through-research the next generation of archaeologists in premodern plasters and ceramics from the Eastern Mediterranean. The project will study the technologies, know-how, raw materials and instruments developed and used through the centuries for their production. A consortium of eight universities and research centres in collaboration with other universities and entities from the public and private sectors will assist the early-stage researchers to confront current and future challenges in the domains of archaeological sciences and cultural heritage. The research aims to contribute to a further understanding of the evolution of plaster and ceramic technologies and their adoption in diverse social settings.
