Joint Archaeological Laboratories

M.A.T.E.R. Project - Man, Archaeometry, Technology, Environment, Researches

M.A.T.E.R. Project (Man, Archaeometry, Technology, Environment, Researches) aims at exploring, through a multidisciplinary perspective, the prehistoric site at Poliochni, Lemnos island, which can be considered one of the most large Bronze Age settlement of the North Aegean, including Troy, Miletus and Liman Tepe on the Western coastline of Anatolia.

The propose Joint Laboratory, shared with the Department of Material Science of The National Center for Scientific Research ‘Demokritos’ (DMS), Athens, will focus on achieving the most advanced strategies and technologies applied in the field of material cultural (pottery, lithics and bone), of environmental researches (Archaeobotany, Palinology, Geoarchaeology), as well as Carbon Dating (C-14).

Geographical area of application: Greece

Multidisciplinary Laboratory of excavations in the Lykos valley

Purpose: this laboratory, in collaboration with IBAM and the University of Pamukkale in Turkey, is dedicated to the reconstruction of historic landscapes in the Lykos valley (SW Turkey), one of the best-preserved districts in the whole of Anatolia, where, within a small radius, can be found three major ancient cities which developed in a close relationship to one another between the Hellenistic and Byzantine periods: Hierapolis of Phrygia (where IBAM is involved through the Italian Archaeological Mission), Laodicaea-on-the-Lykos and Tripolis-on-the-Maeander (where the Department of Archaeology of the University of Pamukkale is working).

The Joint Archaeological Laboratory, which brings together the skills, instrumentation and methods of research of the two participating institutes, is focussed on the study of the three ancient cities of the Lykos valley and their territories, with an approach which unites archaeology with earth sciences in order to investigate both the exceptionally rich historical and archaeological traces in this district and its specific geological and environmental characteristics.

Geographical area of application: Turkey

R.O.M.A. – Roman baths archaeological, cOnservation and heritage MAnagement 

Purpose: to improve understanding, methods and technologies in the field of cultural heritage, with particular emphasis on documentation, analysis and systems of information management, with the aim of providing information to end-users, stakeholders and authorities which work in the field of the study and conservation of cultural heritage. The laboratory’s research is focussed on the Roman baths at the archaeological site of ancient Sagalassos (Aglasun, Turkey). This was the largest public building ever constructed in Sagalassos, and it remained in use for around 500 years, until it was largely destroyed in an earthquake in the seventh century AD.

The Archaeological Laboratory is intended to build a bridge between innovative tools and strategies of information management, in order to improve the assessment and monitoring of decay and the collection of data, thus generating policies for analysis and for the support of management of cultural heritage.

Geographical area of application: Turkey
