For the FWF-project “Fingerprinting white marbles”, a PhD student position is available for the topic “Organisation, transportation and logistics of marble from the quarries to the cities in Roman Thrace”.
The aims of the project are a petrographic-geochemical classification of Thracian white marbles used in antiquity by comparing quarries with the marble landscape of cities and villas, taking into consideration architecture, sculpture and inscriptions. Based on Roman economic models, scientific questions regarding demand-based production, regional markets, workshops, as well as a connection between the quality of the raw material and the kind of the final product will be tracked.
