Pottery productions and imports of the archaic and classical period on the ionian coastal sites of South Calabria

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Around the end of the VIII century bC the gulf of Taranto reaches a primary role in the process of colonization of South Italy and Sicily. In a geomorphologic tight space five colonies are founded (Taranto, Sibari, Crotone, Caulonia e Locri) to which two others are added during the next century (Metaponto, Siris).

Achean colonial settlements acquire in this context a leading role according with their substance and the consequent ability of interaction with the others Ionian coastal centers.

The research grant is intended for the depth analyses of one of the principal archaeological markers: pottery productions of the archaic and classical period of the Ionian coastal site, primarily of the achean ones.

Global analyses of pottery productions dated between VIII and VI century bC will significantly contribute to enlarge documentary basis functional to historical reconstruction of this sites.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
