À propos de l’auteur

Babette Bechtold, currently post-doctoral researcher at the Institut für Klassische Archäologie of the University of Vienna, is specialised in studies of material culture of the south-central Mediterranean. She has been involved in many excavation projects at Carthage, Malta and in western Sicily. Since several years she works on provenance studies of transport amphorae from the Archaic to the Hellenistic period and is co-author of the open-access data-base of FACEM. In particular and most recently, she has focused on Punic amphorae production in western Sicily and distribution patterns of Punic and western Greek amphorae series in Carthage’s sphere of influence.

Karin Schmidt studies Roman pottery in the central Mediterranean context and worked for many years as the responsible of the finds laboratory in research projects at Carthage and on Pantelleria where she focused on Pantellerian Ware. Most recently and within the framework of pottery provenance studies for the data-base of FACEM, she has specialised in microscopy of ceramic samples.

Giuseppe Montana has been Associate Professor at the University of Palermo since 2005. His research activity covers topics in the field of mineralogy and petrography applied to cultural heritage (archaeological ceramics, natural and artificial stones).

Luciana Randazzo is Postdoc researcher at the Dipartimento di Scienze della Terra e del Mare (DiSTeM), University of Palermo. Her main research efforts focus on archaeometric studies concerning ceramic artefacts, marbles, mortars; studies on typology, causes and mechanisms of alteration/degradation of building stones using petrographic, mineralogical, and geochemical techniques. She currently works also on geomaterials for green building practice (clay-based plasters).
