10th European Meeting on Ancient Ceramics – British Museum

March 18, 2009


The UCL Institute of Archaeology and the British Museum are proud to organise the tenth anniversary European Meeting on Ancient Ceramics (EMAC),to be held at the British Museum in London from the 10th to the 13th of September, 2009.

We are committed to make this EMAC especially inclusive, therefore we also solicit contributions from non-European countries, and on non-European ceramics. International keynote speakers include Ian Freestone, Clive Orton,Hector Neff, Venetia Porter and Prudence Rice.


The main focus of EMAC is the scientific study and archaeological interpretation of ancient ceramics. Bringing together established scholars and young researchers from a wide range of academic backgrounds, including ceramic petrologists, chemists, material scientists, geologists,archaeologists and art historians, EMAC stimulates an international and cross-faculty exchange of ideas and approaches.

London’s EMAC ’09, coinciding with Wedgwood’s 250th anniversary, will have a special themed session “From Craft to Science”, to promote and discuss the study of ceramics produced in the wake of the Industrial Revolution. The following themes will be covered as well: Technology and provenance, Methodological developments, Dating, Technical ceramics, Building materials, Islamic ceramics, and Residue analysis.

All delegates will receive a copy of the volume that will be published with peer-reviewed conference papers.
