Conservation of Roman Mosaics 2018

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

In 2018, the workshop (started in 2012) will be hosted again by the National Institution Stobi, Macedonia at the Roman city of Stobi (today an archaeological park). It provides an unique opportunity for students and volunteers to gain comprehensive knowledge and hands-on experience in Roman (esp. Late Roman) Mosaic Art and Conservation. During the workshop participants will be guided through the consequent stages of study, conservation and documentation as well as the history and technology of Roman and Late Roman mosaics.They will work with either authentic Late Roman mosaic sections found in the ancient city of Stobi.

Approximately 1560 square meters of the excavated territory of the ancient city of Stobi are covered with entirely or partly preserved mosaics, dated mainly between the second and sixth century CE. The first preventive conservation of a part of the mosaics in Stobi started in the 1930s and continued sporadically in the following decades. Nowadays many of the mosaics require urgent conservation and preservation due to the damages caused by the weather and lack of proper and constant maintenance in the past decades. In 2009, NI Stobi started a long-term program for complete conservation and exhibition of the mosaics at Stobi. Each Balkan Heritage Workshop contributes to this program and facilitates significantly the conservation of at least one of the endangered mosaics!
