Workshop on reproduction of archaeological objects

"Research, Recovery, Revival: From analysis and laboratory
experiments to full scale reproduction of archaeological artefacts"
NARNIA / THETIS Authentics Ltd, Athens, Greece
28-30 April 2014


The full scale reconstruction of objects using the original
materials, techniques and processes, in the context of a
contemporary production or a large scale restoration work can
ultimately lead to the revival of an old / lost craft with tangible
and sometimes unexpected benefits such as new products and services
in the field of education, tourism and even our everyday life.  The
3-day workshop is based upon courses combining theory with hands on
experience and traditional techniques with modern technology (i.e.
3D scanning and printing); the goal of the TR is to demonstrate the
validity of the full scale reproduction of ancient and historical
artefacts (ceramics, metals, mosaics, wall paintings, byzantine
icons, textiles and dyes) as a continuation of the physicochemical
analysis and the experiments that usually take place in the course
of a scientific study. The participants will have the opportunity to
visit a historic textile industry located in the center of Athens
and experiment with ancient culinary customs and selected recipes in
technologically authentic tableware.

This NARNIA / THETIS Authentics Ltd workshop event is offered free
of charge, but participants are expected to assume their own travel
and accommodation expenses.

Registration deadline: 5 April 2014

The training course is *not* open to the public, and there is a
limited number of places available (15-18), specifically for PhD
students and early stage researchers specializing in ancient

Trainers: Eleni Aloupi (THETIS, ceramics), Bessie Argyropoulos (TEI
