Information about the talk
This talk focuses on the use of experimental archaeology in museum collections. Part of the project 'Blood and Money: The Military Industrial Complex in Archaic Central Italy', is supported by the Royal Society of New Zealand's Marsden Fund. This collaboration between Classics and Ancient History and Archaeology is exploring the development, manufacture, supply, and maintenance of military equipment in the ancient Mediterranean using archaic Central Italy as a case study. This informal talk will present the basics of the project and some of the benefits (and issues) of this ongoing work – with a particular focus on data acquisition using macroscopic analysis, pXRF, and 3D modelling in the context of museum collections.
The project is headed by Dr. Jeremy Armstrong, Senior Lecturer in Classics and Ancient History, in collaboration with Dr. Josh Emmitt and Mr. Tim Mackrell from Anthropology and the School of Social Sciences.
