Offre de thèse : Sampling, characterisation and reproduction of historic plasters from Cyprus with special emphasis on hydraulic lime plasters (Nicosia)

Logo University of Cyprus

The PhD is expected to work on plasters from archaeological sites in Cyprus dating to the Roman and Late Antique period. A special emphasis will be given to hydraulic lime plasters which were used in baths, artificial pools and baptestiria which have not been studied up to now. The PhD will work on the identification of the raw materials used and will also try to experimentally reproduce the plasters and make suggestions for their possible use in the restoration of monuments. Most of the research will be conducted at the University of Cyprus, but the PhD is expected to travel to partner organisations for further training, including a secondment to NCSR Demokritos in Greece. This is the position ESR09 within the PlaCe-ITN project: Interdisciplinary studies of pre-modern Plasters and Ceramics from the eastern Mediterranean.
