The teaching course “Archaeology of production in the Greek world” firstly concerns the students of second degree “Diagnostics for Cultural Heritage; however, it is shared with the second degree “Archeologia”.

The second part of the lectures will include topics regarding ceramic technology. Finally, the third part of the course will analyze some production contexts in Greece and southern Italy.

Following the lectures and self-studying students will gain knowledge of the principal topics of the Archaeology of production and will learn the characteristics of the principal productive contexts in ancient Greece.
