Our final conference will focus on the Classical world and follows the successful event in June 2012 which explored the carving of stone throughout history. This year papers will concentrate on the technical aspects of Classical sculptural and architectural production, and the interpretation of the working practices involved and the craftsmen responsible. The full programme is available on the events page of our project website: www.artofmaking.ac.uk/events/.
The conference will also mark the official launch of the Art of Making in Antiquity website www.artofmaking.ac.uk. This is a new web resource for the study of Roman stoneworking, centred on the digitised photographic archive of Peter Rockwell, which explores the evidence for making processes surviving on Roman stone monuments.
Posters are invited on the techniques of production of stone monuments from the Classical world or related topics and time periods. Research which combines the Digital Humanities is encouraged. The format for final presentation will be A1. Please send a title and abstract (250 words) with contact details and, where relevant, institutional affiliation to firstname.lastname@example.org by 26th April 2013. Accepted submissions will be given the opportunity to be published on the final project website www.artofmaking.ac.uk.
