Archaeology Field School Description

The Workshop for Restoration and Documentation of Roman Pottery will take place for second time at the archaeological site of Stobi (this ancient city was the capital city of Macedonia Secunda). It will guide the participants through the history of Roman pottery, its production and consequent stages of archaeological conservation, documentation, study, and restoration. Both the theoretical and practical courses will be based on Roman and Late Roman pottery found in Stobi. The project in 2011 will include three modules: practical work in documentation and restoration of Roman pottery; educational course (lectures, trainings, study - and behind-the-scenes 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 contemporary pottery workshop. By the end of the workshop the participants will: * know basic methods how to document and restore ancient pottery; * develop basic/further practical skills (depending on participant's initial level of qualification) in ancient pottery restoration and graphic reproduction of ancient pottery shards/vessels; * deepen their knowledge through first-hand experience on Roman History and Archaeology; * meet professionals, who work in the areas of Roman archaeology and/or pottery 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. Participants will use the tools, materials and equipment available at the site.
