30.07.-03.08.2018, a small but hot project meeting in Mainz
Sometimes a heated head is not caused by a heated discussion or some difficult tasks, but simply by the so-called “summer of the century”. And it was exactly during this heat wave that Barbara Armbruster’s visit to the RGZM took place, which we used for a small team meeting with all colleagues on the German side.
In addition to the fine-tuning of the database, the first project presentations, such as at the Glauberg Werkstattgespräche or at the Colloque international AVREVS, were discussed. Also the second complete team meeting, which should take place this time in Orléans, was planned (see report above) as well as the next analysis series in Mannheim at the end of 2018, which would be dedicated to the small ring ornament (see “Studies” section).
Of course, apart from all these organizational things, which also included the planning of the upcoming session at the EAA in Barcelona, there was still time to present and discuss the latest research results.
Furthermore, we met Univ.-Prof. Dr. Sabine Hornung of the Department of Pre- and Protohistory and Near Eastern Archaeology at the Saarland University to discuss and plan a cooperation concerning ancient fine metalwork.
