Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

With pottery samples from the plain of Paestum (southern Italy) of diffrent ware groups - like black gloss ware, coarse ware, and ceramic building materials - the description and definition of pottery fabrics with the aid of a binocular will be demonstrated and practised.
The diffrent analytical mineralogical and petrographic techniques used in archaeometry (like thin section observation, chemical and mineralogical analyses) will be presented and the presentation of the results discussed. Special emphasis will be laid on the choice of proper analytical methods for the diffrent research questions concerning technological and provenance matters.

Assessment and permitted materials

Regular and active participation in the course; presentation of one or more filled in fabric and thin section description sheets and a simple interpretation of chemical data.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

70% of attendance required
