Institute Support of Levantine Ceramics Project Recognized
The Institute’s support of the Levantine Ceramics Project (LCP: http://www.levantineceramics.org/) by Professor of Archeology and Hariri Institute Fellow Andrea Berlin was recognized in a CSA Newsletter article. LCP is a collaboration between archeologists which makes evidence of ceramic wares, shapes, and laboratory analyses readily available for researchers through an on-line repository. The LCP project also organized a series of workshops on Levantine Ceramic Production and Distribution at the Danish Institute of Archaeology in Athens Greece. The first workshop was successfully launched in 2012, a second one in 2013, and there will be a third workshop coming up this spring. The LCP project is evidence of the potential of digital technology to transform research in various disciplines and the potential for taking good ideas to the next level through intense cooperation over online assets.
