Institute students join NARNIA course in Cyprus
23 May 2012
Institute students recently participated in a week-long course on the archaeometallurgy of Cyprus organised by the Marie-Curie funded NARNIA Initial Training Network.
In early May, 6 students taking the Institute's MSc in the Technology and Analysis of Archaeological Materials and 8 PhD students attended the training course on the archaeometallurgy of Cyprus in Nicosia, Cyprus, at which Thilo Rehren was invited to be a guest speaker.
This event was organised by the Marie-Curie funded interdisciplinary NARNIA Initial Training Network of which UCL is a partner.
The main objective of the NARNIA network - New Archaeological Research Network for Integrating Approaches to ancient material studies - is to provide young researchers with the means to conduct research on ancient Eastern Mediterranean material cultures while developing their analytical skills through a series of research and training activities.
The course was a tremendous success with the students enjoying some fascinating lectures by some of the best known academics in the field of archaeometallurgy as well as site visits and experimental demonstrations.
