Project Description

In 2014 the WORKSHOP FOR CONSERVATION AND DOCUMENTATION OF ROMAN MOSAICS will be hosted for the third time by the National Institution Stobi, Macedonia at the Roman city of Stobi (nowadays an archaeological park).It provides an unique opportunity for students and volunteers  to gain comprehensive knowledge and hands-on experience in Roman (esp. Late Roman) Mosaic Art and Conservation.

Each Balkan Heritage Workshop for Conservation and Documentation of Roman Mosaics contributes to this program and facilitates significantly the conservation of at least one of the endangered mosaics!

The field school project was first initiated in 2012 and in 2012-2013 focused on conservation of the floor mosaics in the Theodossian Palace. Thanks to the hardworking conservation team of NI Stobi and all project participants as well as the Balkan Heritage funding two of the floor mosaics in that building were successfully conserved. In 2014 the project will move on to conservation of one of the mosaics in the Episcopal Basilica, which is considered to be the oldest and most important Early Christian monument in the Republic of Macedonia.

The instructions and supervision of work will be provided by professional conservators and archaeologists. All participants will receive the BHFS Certificate specifying fieldwork hours, educational modules taught, and sites visited.
