Description
The WORKSHOP FOR CONSERVATION, RESTORATION AND DOCUMENTATION OF ROMAN POTTERY 2013 will be hosted as usual by the National Institute of Stobi, Macedonia at the Stobi Archaeological Park. It will guide the participants through the history and technology of Roman and Late Roman pottery and consequent stages of archaeological conservation, restoration, documentation and study. Both the theoretical and practical courses will be based on Roman pottery found in the ancient city of Stobi. During the workshop participants will work with authentic Roman shards. The project includes three modules: practical work in documentation and restoration of Roman pottery; lectures, trainings and behind-the-scenes study visits and excursions to the St.Archangel Michael Monastery (10th century), the old towns of Prilep and Bitola, the archaeological site of Heraclea Lyncestis, Ohrid and Ohrid lake (UNESCO World Heritage Site) as well as to a traditional pottery workshop. By the end of the workshop the participants will: be introduced to the basic methods of how to document and restore ancient pottery; be able to develop basic/further practical skills (depending on participant’s initial level of qualification) in ancient pottery restoration and illustration (both drawing and using graphic software); deepen their knowledge through first-hand experience of Roman History and Archaeology; meet professionals who work in the areas of Classical Archaeology and Pottery Conservation, Restoration and Documentation. All participants will receive: Project handbook (in PDF version by e-mail and a hard copy on arrival); Balkan Heritage Field School Certificate specifying the fieldwork hours, educational modules, and sites visited.
