Prerequisites and restrictions
Admission to the MA-programme.
In a series of practical assignments, supplemented with short formal lectures, the students will familiarise themselves with different categories of material culture, studying them from a technological and functional point of view (block II). Subsequently, the students will partake in small-scale practical research in either the Ceramic Laboratory or the Laboratory for Artefact Studies (block III). They will complete the course by writing a short report on the practical research project they participated in. If a student wants to write his/her thesis on a specific specialisation like use-wear analysis, an experimental research project, or ceramic technology, his/her practical research in block III will be directed towards this end. This will lead to an MSc-degree.
Familiarising students with the properties and functionality of different raw materials, especially stone, flint, bone and ceramics;
Learn to describe assemblages from a typomorphological and functional point of view;
General understanding of the technological processes involved.
