Event description

Description

Do you need to identify pottery, but don't always have access to a specialist?

Today, characterisation and classification of ceramics is carried out manually, through the expertise of specialists and the use of analogue catalogues, but it is not always possible to work with a specialist, and use of catalogues for identification is time consuming and costly. The ArchAIDE project (archaide.eu) is a Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme developing a new app for tablets and smartphones to support the ceramic classification and interpretation work of archaeologists (during both fieldwork and post-excavation analysis). Initial pottery types include Majolica, Samian Ware, and Roman Amphorae. ArchAIDE invites heritage professionals to learn about ArchAIDE and the development of the app, and provide reflection and feedback to the project, as it enters its final year of development.
