In 2011 the ceramics workshop students learned the process of analyzing and restoring archaeological ceramics. They worked on pottery of classical and medieval periods coming from several sources: some from the excavation of the Baths in Carsulae; some were lent by Rome’s Archaeological Soprintensenza and came from recent excavations at the Palatine Hill; lastly, some came from the Archaeological Museum of Perugia.
The work done on the objects started with the sorting, analysis, and documentation of the shards and was followed by conservation work that involved cleaning and reassembling the surviving pieces and the infill of the missing portions. All the work was carried out by the students, under the close supervision of the faculty.
