The Workshop will guide the participants through the process of conservation, restoration, documentation and study of ancient Greek pottery. Both the theoretical and practical courses will be based on original pottery found in the necropolis of the ancient Greek city Apollonia Pontica (present-day Bulgarian coastal city of Sozopol). The necropolis is dated to the 6th – 2nd century B.C. and nowadays is Sozopol's most important archaeological site. It was once outside the ramparts of the town, along the coastal road Via Pontica. Here archaeologists have discovered hundreds of ancient graves. Some of them contained impressive artifacts such as painted pottery, funerary reliefs, jewels and terracotta statuettes. The most representative collection of finds is kept by the Sozopol Archaeological Museum, Bulgaria but some artifacts are now in the Louvre Museum (France), the Hermitage Museum (Russia) and the Pergamon Museum (Germany).
