 Project objective

The project involves an interdisciplinary study of mining landscapes in northern Greece and archaeological material found therein by employing modern analytical techniques (GIS, archaeometry) in order tο provide quantifiable data on the social, symbolic and economic significance of metal production in the ancient world. The project’s objective is to address three crucial research questions corresponding to different technological breakthroughs: a) the emergence and early development of copper and silver technology within the Late Neolithic/Bronze Age cultural framework (5th-2nd mill. BC), b) the introduction of iron metallurgy associated with increased connectivity between sites of the North Aegean and Anatolia around 1200-700 BC, c) the intensification of mining and extraction of gold and silver during the Archaic and Classical period (700-323 BC), triggered by the establishment of Greek colonies on the Thracian coastline. Its methodology employs interdisciplinary research tools such as archaeological finds recording, field survey, GIS data processing, sampling and archaeometric analysis of finds as well as experimental production of metals using ancient examples. The distinctive feature of this project that will expand research beyond the current state of knowledge will be re-socializing the study of metal production and subsequently to develop new multidisciplinary approaches which will have direct scientific impact on the study of ancient Greek metallurgy and society. Dissemination of the project results will be achieved through publication of scientific articles and a monograph, presentations in international conferences, organisation of a scientific workshop with invited speakers and seminars for students. Workshops for the general public featuring simulation experiments, lectures delivered at science outreach events and a dedicated website will be crucial aspects for communicating the project results more widely.
