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.

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