Archaeology and the Ancient World Commencement Ceremony

Sunday, May 25th, 2014

Following the ceremony on Brown's Main Green.

Rhode Island Hall, Room 108

Graduate Symposium:
Ancient Pyrotechnology: Materials Science Investigations into Archaeomaterials

RESCHEDULED. Date TBD.

This graduate symposium on ancient pyrotechnology will explore the multitude of materials science investigations into archaeomaterials. By moving away from the ideals of stylistic typologies and evaluating materials on the basis of technique, technical skill, treatment, and material choice, we may begin to examine technological style, or the choices the craftsman makes in the production of an artifact.

Please visit http://proteus.brown.edu/ancientpyrotechnology/home for further updates.

The symposium is being organized in conjunction with Brown School of Engineering, and is free and open to the public.
