Archaeology Field School Description


The WORKSHOP FOR MOSAIC CONSERVATION AND DOCUMENTATION OF ROMAN MOSAICS 2012 will be hosted by the National Institute of Stobi, Macedonia at the Roman city of Stobi (nowadays an archaeological park) that has numerous examples of high-quality Roman mosaic art (both mosaic floors in situ and mosaic fragments in the store). The workshop will guide the participants through the history and technology of Roman and Late Roman mosaics and consequent stages of archaeological conservation, restoration, documentation and study. Both the theoretical and practical courses will be based on Roman mosaics located/found at the ancient city of Stobi. During the workshop participants will work with either authentic Roman mosaic shards oron an original Roman mosaic floor in situ! The project includes three modules: practical work in documentation and conservation of Roman mosaics; lectures and trainings as well as 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).

By the end of the workshop the participants will:

- be introduced to the basic methods for documentation and conservation of Roman mosaics;
- be able to develop basic/further practical skills (depending on participant’s initial level of qualification) in ancient mosaic conservation 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 Mosaic 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.

Participants will use the tools, materials and equipment available at the site.
