Title of Research Project

A diachronic study of ancient Cypriot metalwork

Fellowship Description

Research focuses on a diachronic study of the metalwork produced through the ages on the island.  This is a subject which has not received much attention in the past and which is feasible today thanks to the possibility of using a portable XRF analyser which does not require sampling. Collaboration will be established with the NARNIA partner institution of Sheffield, which leads a relevant work-package about the application of portable XRF in archaeology within the broader NARNIA project.
