Archaeology Field School Description

In 2015 the WORKSHOP FOR CONSERVATION AND DOCUMENTATION OF ROMAN AND LATE ROMAN MOSAICS will be hosted for the 4th time by the National Institution Stobi, Macedonia at the Roman city of Stobi (nowadays an archaeological park). It provides an unique opportunity for students and volunteers to gain comprehensive knowledge and hands-on experience in Roman (esp. Late Roman) Mosaic Art and Conservation. During the workshop, participants will be guided through the sequential stages of conservation, restoration and documentation, as well as the history and technology of Roman and Late Roman mosaics. They will work with either authentic Late Roman mosaic fragments or on an original Late Roman mosaic floor in situ at the ancient city of Stobi. The project includes three modules: (1) Practical work: documentation and conservation of Roman mosaics (2) Lectures and trainings on Mosaic History and Conservation, and (3) Excursions to the town Bitola, the archaeological site of Heraclea Lyncestis, Ohrid and Ohrid Lake (UNESCO World Heritage Site). By the end of the workshop, participants will have been introduced to the basic methods for the conservation and documentation of ancient mosaics; be able to develop basic/further practical skills (depending on the participantís initial level of qualification) in ancient mosaic conservation and documentation; have a deeper knowledge through first-hand experience of Roman history and archaeology; have met professionals who work in the areas of Classical archaeology and mosaic conservation, restoration and documentation. Each Balkan Heritage Workshop for Conservation and Documentation of Roman Mosaics contributes to this program and facilitates significantly the conservation of at least one of the endangered mosaics! All participants receive a Project Handbook and the BHFS Certificate of Attendance.
