Offre de thèse : Raw materials in the production of ancient Cypriot ceramics: sampling the Cypriot geo-environment (Nicosia)

Logo The Cyprus Institute

For this project, the successful candidate is expected to conduct fieldwork for the collection of soil and clay samples from the Cypriot geo-environment, followed by laboratory analysis, including experimental firings, microscopic and chemical analysis, aiming at an enhanced understanding of the interrelation between local ceramic technology and the Cypriot geo-environment. The impact of the geology on intra- and inter-regional compositional and technological variability recorded in ceramic assemblages across the long history of ceramic craftmanship in Cyprus is a further focus of the research. This is the position ESR01 within the PlaCe-ITN project: Interdisciplinary studies of pre-modern Plasters and Ceramics from the eastern Mediterranean.
