The workshop is restricted to 20 individuals.

Please contact Greg Braun at if you wish to enroll or would like more details. It will be held from 1:00 – 4:00pm and you MUST be registered to participate.

Date: Tuesday October 24, 2017

Location: Earth Sciences Centre, U of T (St. George Campus)
Room 2101, 22 Russell Street

Petrography has been used for over 150 years to address archaeological questions. While this work initially focused primarily on provenance and exchange, research over the past two decades has increasingly used petrography to explore a much wider variety of social practices. Petrographic data bridges the divide between visually observable characteristics, such as colour, and unseen characteristics such as chemical/elemental data; for this reason, petrography remains an essential element of many archaeological studies involving material-science techniques. This workshop will provide you with a primer in ceramic and lithic petrography, including some hands-on training using archaeological materials.
