I would like to draw your attention to the international conference “Interdisciplinary Studies of Ancient Materials from the Mediterranean“, organised by the Archaeological Research Unit of the University of Cyprus between the 17th and the 19th of September 2014 (followed by an excursion on the 20th of September), in Nicosia, Cyprus.

The conference is organised in the framework of the multi-partner, European funded, Marie Curie ITN New Archaeological Research Network for Integrating Approaches to ancient material studies (NARNIA), and it will host 57 paper presentations and 25 poster presentations by young researchers and experienced scholars from the Mediterranean, Europe and the United States.

The thematic sessions of the conference correspond to the work areas of the NARNIA project and include:

1. The interdisciplinary study of ancient ceramics

2. Ancient and historical glass production and trade

3. Copper metallurgy across the Mediterranean

4. Interdisciplinary assessments of architectural decoration (mosaics, wall-paintings, stone buildings)

5. Dating techniques and the palaeo-environment

6. pXRF application in Archaeology

You may find the full programme of the conference by visiting the following link. If you are interested in attending the conference, please complete and send the conference registration form by Wednesday, the 30th of July 2014.

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT

Interdisciplinary Studies of Ancient Materials from 
the Mediterranean

First Call for Papers

The  <http://www.narnia-itn.eu> NARNIA research network is pleased

entitled: "Interdisciplinary Studies of Ancient Materials from the 
Mediterranean", to be held at the main campus of the University of 
Cyprus, in Nicosia, Cyprus, between the 17th and 19th of September 
2014. 

The conference will provide an opportunity for new and established 
researchers to share research in an international forum and to 
exchange ideas on the latest interdisciplinary approaches, 
analytical techniques and methodologies for the integrated study 
of ancient materials, technologies and the environment. 

The NARNIA network is a collaboration of researchers who are 
engaged in the holistic study of ancient materials to facilitate 
a better understanding of the strategies associated with the 
production and the consumption of material culture and its impact 
on the historic and ancient environment.

We invite oral and poster presentations of research projects that 
cut across disciplines, and combine archaeological and analytical 
data to aid archaeological and historical interpretation. 
Contributions that discuss ancient production techniques, the 
history of technology, cultural transformation at both local and 
regional scales are especially welcome. In addition to the papers 
that will be presented by the twenty NARNIA fellows, we encourage 
presentations by other research teams or individuals outside of the
NARNIA network.
