Webinar #08: Archaeology and IPERION HS
An overview of what IPERION HS can offer to the Archaeology Community
The webinar takes place online and will introduce participants to the facilities for archaeology in IPERION HS, a European project devoted to building a distributed research infrastructure in the field of Heritage Science: E-RIHS (http://www.e-rihs.eu/).
The webinar will introduce the archaeologists to IPERION-HS and the distributed heritage science infrastructure they can access to answer a wide range of research questions. It will include short presentations by different providers representing the different service platforms of IPERION-HS: FIXLAB, ARCHLAB and MOLAB.

Key topics we’ll cover
45 minutes (30 minutes + 15 minutes Q&A)
Gill Campbell, UK – She leads a team of heritage scientists based at Fort Cumberland, Portsmouth, UK. Her research focuses on the utilization of plant resources in the past, the nature of biocultural heritage and the development and improvement of archaeological science practice. She is chair of the Association for Environmental Archaeology (AEA).
Oliver Craig, UK – He is a Professor of Archaeological Science at the University of York. He specialises in biomolecular archaeology, i.e. the recovery of proteins, lipids and DNA from ancient skeletal remains and archaeological artefacts to provide insights into past human activities. His particular interests lie in temporal transitions and variability in human diets, cuisine and subsistence practices and the impact that dietary changes had on social evolution, health and the environment.
Canan Çakırlar, NL – She is an Assistant professor of zooarchaeology and the director of the zooarchaeology laboratory at the Groningen University Institute of Archaeology (Netherlands). Her research interests include the dispersal and development of husbandry technologies during neolithisations, coastal adaptations and management of aquatic resources, climatic fluctuations and societal change, provisioning of state-level societies, and human impact on Holocene zoogeography.
Giovanni Leucci, IT – After the Degree in Physics, he has achieved the title of PhD in Environmental Geophysics. Currently. He is a Research Director at the Institute of Heritage Sciences (ISPC-CNR). Leucci’s research interests include geophysics applied to archaeology, geology, engineering, environment and non-invasive diagnostics of monumental heritage.
Laurentiu Angheluta, RO – He is a Senior Researcher at NIRD for Optoelectronics INOE 2000 with a focus on close-range and aerial photogrammetry, 3D laser scanning, and X-Ray imaging as documentation and digitization methods for Cultural Heritage assets. Other complementary skills that contribute to these activities are photography, programming, web design, and database development.
