Project description

Iron Age and Roman sites, situated along the channel-coast reveal painted handmade pottery. A thorough, multidisciplinary research is needed to examine the distribution, data, origin and technological aspects of this diachronical pottery tradition. A broad spectrum of archaeometrical techniques will be used (petrography, geo-chemical analysis, 14C, FTIR, XRF, RAMAN, DTMS) to answer these questions. The results will be published internatinally.
