Ceramics Restoration Project 2013: Roman Burial Grave Goods

Field work done by students in 2013

Restoration of grave goods from the Roman burial found in Coranoni near Norcia

In 2013 a very interesting project was done: the restoration of a set of pottery that was part of the grave goods of a  recently discovered burial site near Norcia at a construction site. The finds were damaged accidentally by an excavation plow. These pieces were lent to the SGPS by the Archaeological Museum of Perugia for restoration.

Pottery typology analysis

The pottery diagnostic studies were part of a different exercise analyzing finds from the excavations done in Roman Carsulae and the Palatine in Rome.
