The aim of the project Late Medieval Pottery as Part of Movable Cultural Heritage is as much as possible to link current research of late medieval pottery with practice, ie. provide professionals engaged within their institutions a methodological support. The purpose is to provide the necessary knowledge about the applied methodological procedures at each step of the cognitive process in order to achieve optimal standards, ie. in the process of acquisition ceramics during field research, after laboratory processing, recording, description, documentation, cataloging and archiving, when the ceramics become objects of museum character. It also includes additional modern analysis of organic residues.
Within specific objective Ceramics as a technological problem will be developed modern techniques, tools and technologies in archaeometric research of ceramics using X-ray fluorescence. The developed methods will be tested on the basis of experimental research. The result will be to obtain detailed information on the structure and properties of ceramic materials that can be used not only to study the technology of ceramics, but also to design an appropriate laboratory, conservation and restoration process and other preventive provision. The results will be published through map of archaeometric analysis.
The specific objective Bringing the results of ceramic study for professional, presentation and educational purposes (Ceramics and public) is accessing of the result of medieval pottery research through modern media. Specific objective will be implemented in the form of: digital data archive for archiving information on regional medieval pottery research with map of pottery assemblages, archaeological 3D virtual museum for the presentation of valuable medieval pottery assemblages and interactive exhibition. Part of the objective is to create publication on methods of ceramics research and presentation of results through workshops and conferences.
