Archaeological Glass and Glazes
One-week course (8 to 12 November 2010) at the UCL Institute of Archaeology.
The course covers the principles and archaeological evidence for glass production and trade world-wide, from the Late Bronze Age / Egypt through the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Islamic Empires up to the medieval and early modern period in Europe. The course is designed for students in the MSc in Technology and Analysis of Archaeological Materials, but caters also for students interested in artefacts and conservation. We will NOT be discussing typological aspects of glass artefacts, or details of glass working. Participation is limited to 20 students, on a first-come first-serve basis.
The course is taught predominantly by Thilo Rehren, and consists of ten two-hour slots (Monday to Friday 10-12 and 2-4 pm). The course fee for participants not registered as students at UCL is GBP 450 for the week, and includes a handbook and other teaching material, but no accommodation or meals.
