Nisyros Pottery

 

During two weeks in the summer of 2019 (17-28 June 2019), a workshop for the 'Conservation and Physicochemical Study of Nisyros Shipwreck Pottery' will take place at Athens in Greece. The course will be organized by the Faculty of Archaeology, Leiden University (NL), in collaboration with the Netherlands Institute at Athens (NIA), the Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities at Athens and the Greek Research Center/Laboratory 'NCSR Demokritos' at Athens.
This workshop provides an unique opportunity for BA, MA, RMA and PhD students to gain more knowledge and a hands-on experience in Byzantine, Medieval and Post-Medieval pottery conservation. It guides the participants through the history and technology of Byzantine, Medieval and Post-Medieval pottery in Greece, and through stages of the study, conservation, restoration and documentation of archaeological artefacts. Both the theoretical and practical classes will be based on authentic pottery finds from Nisyros shipwreck. Finally, a first approach of physicochemical analyses will be presented.
All teaching will be in English
