What’s New in Ancient Glass Research
Sunday, May 17, 2015 | 8:30 a.m. – 5:20 p.m. | Hyatt Regency Miami
400 SE 2nd Ave., Miami, FL 33131
Learn what’s new in ancient glass research at this one-day workshop.
The workshop focuses on a demonstration of the feasibility of the three techniques that have been proposed for the manufacture of Egyptian core vessels. Topics include:
- reconstructing knowledge of production events
- reverse engineering ancient technologies
- preserving objects and the behavioral knowledge of production, consumption and distribution that they encompass.
Because their manufacture spans a long history and diverse Mediterranean geography, further object examination and analysis may reveal a more complex technological history than previously recognized. Join ACerS’ Art, Archaeology and Conservation Science Division, in conjunction with the American Institute for Conservation, for their one-day workshop (between the AIC annual meeting and GOMD-DGG 2015).
