Gatzea II: Stratigraphy seminar
Pelion, Greece
2-7 September 2013

Closing of the Seminar will be a half day excursion on 8 September
2013. Participants are expected to arrive in Gatzea on 1 September 1
and depart in the afternoon of 8 September 2013, so as to attend the
whole seminar.

"Gatzea II" is a one-week educational seminar on historical
stratigraphy, the case study of which will be an old olive oil mill.
It is open to students and young professionals in the field of
heritage (archaeology, architecture, conservation, urban planning
and regeneration, restoration, art history, et. al.) and other
specialists interested in the field.

The seminar focuses on the comprehension of the different periods of
any historical construction. Buildings are always modified over
time, leaving signs of these transformations on the structure. These
signs can be easily traced with an attentive observation.
Stratigraphic analysis is the tool for research which, systematizing
the observation, offers the researcher the comprehension of all
changes as well as their chronological order. The methodology is
developed following the principles of archaeological stratigraphy by
Dr. Edward C. Harris which allows recording evidences of sequential
development and dating.

Through this seminar participants will practise team work on a real
case, essential for the application of this methodology, gain skills
to better understand historical buildings and learn how to use a
rigorous recording system. The educational scheme is based on
implementing the analysis of the different phases of a historical
building, an olive oil mill.

Admission fee: Euro750 (Students and unemployed special fee:
Euro650) which covers all educational and fieldwork activities as
well as materials, accommodation, the excursion and transport from
and to Volos bus or train station. Seven nights' accommodation is
provided in shared room with bathroom and small kitchen. N.B.For
attendees of both seminars a discount of 5% is offered.
