International conference

"Interdisciplinary Studies of Ancient Materials from the
University of Cyprus
Nicosis, Cyprus
17-19 September 2014


The NARNIA research network is pleased to announce the organisation
of the international conference, entitled:  "Interdisciplinary
Studies of Ancient Materials from the Mediterranean ", to be held at
the main campus of the University of Cyprus, in Nicosia, Cyprus,
17-19 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.

Submitted papers and posters should fall under one or more of the
following themes, which correspond to the work areas of the NARNIA

    The interdisciplinary study of ancient ceramics

    Ancient and historical glass production and trade

    Copper metallurgy across the Mediterranean
