Training the next generation of archaeological scientists: Interdisciplinary studies of pre-modern Plasters and Ceramics from the eastern Mediterranean

Project description

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.
