Plakari Project

Karystos, Greece

For the first time in 2014, the summer campaign of the Amsterdam Free University the Plakari Project included a collaboration with the UvA Conservation and Restoration Department. This initiative involved a team of two Post-Master trainees from the Glass, Ceramics and Stone specialisation and one trainee from the specialisation Metal. Metal conservation lecturer Tamar Davidowitz supervised the conservation of the archaeological finds made since 2010. It turned out to be a successful cooperation resulting in the stabilisation, cleaning and reconstruction of a large number of objects. Interesting and important discoveries were also made as a result of the fruitful collaboration, as anticipated to be the case in the future. Students, trainees and lecturers from the UvA Conservation and Restoration Department will keep on participating in this project during the summer.
