NARNIA is an interdisciplinary project, the main objective of which is to provide young researchers with the means to conduct research on ancient Eastern Mediterranean material culture and to develop their analytical skills through a series of research and training activities.
An awareness of the recent advances in technology and an understanding of the implications for theory and practice in the heritage environment have brought together a consortium of academic institutions and private companies in this collaborative project to support young researchers in their first steps into the competitive and complementary worlds of academia and private enterprise.
Sixteen Early Stage Researchers (equivalent to PhD candidates – 4 in sheffield) and three Experienced Researchers (2 in Sheffield) are being trained to integrate theory and archaeological sciences for the study of different material categories, including ceramics, metals, glass and mosaics from primarily Cyprus, Greece and Jordan. This broad collaboration network, facilitates the exploration of analytical equipment and research data, while concurrently directing and promoting research activities in Eastern Mediterranean countries.
