FLAME—A New ERC-funded Archaeology Project at the University of Oxford

recycleOn the 1st of October we began a new integrated programme of archaeological research to investigate the production, use, re-use, and exchange of metal across continental Eurasia. This project, which builds on more than a decade of research and methodological development at the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art at the University of Oxford—entitled FLAME: The FLow of Ancient Metal across Eurasia—has been funded for five years by a substantial grant from the European Research Council.

The project team is lead by Professor Mark Pollard and, by the end of 2016, it will consist of four postdoctoral researchers with broad regional specialisms across Eurasia and technical expertise in metallurgical analysis, archaeological chronology, and geospatial technologies.

We hope to have a website up an running in the next few months to provide general information about the project and related research resources, and we will update this blog regularly throughout the project.
