The NARNIA Project: Integrating approaches to ancient material studies
MetadataShow full item record
This book introduces the research work conducted in the four-year lifespan of the European Marie Curie Actions Initial Training Network (FP7-PEOPLE-Marie Curie Actions-ITN-Project no. 265010) New Archaeological Research Network for Integrating Approaches to ancient material studies, with the acronym NARNIA which has concluded after four years. This is currently the largest project to receive funding from the European Commission in the fields of archaeology and archaeological sciences, with a budget over 4.5 million Euros and 20 recruited research fellows. The book will hopefully act as a testimony of the individual and collective work that has been conducted for the past four years by all our fellows and members of the NARNIA partnership. The papers presented by our fellows in this publication, are short summaries of their research, which will be more extensively published in peer-reviewed journals and, hopefully, monographs following the submission of their doctoral theses. We envisage this book to serve as a medium for people outside the network to become acquainted with the research that was undertaken by our fellows under the supervision of the NARNIA scientific staff, but also as a token of the hard work, dedication and passion of all the people that worked hard for NARNIA to become a milestone in archaeological research.
