PPCP Researchers give Workshop in Petra

“Multidisciplinary Approaches in Cultural Heritage: Archaeology • Conservation • Analytical Sciences” Knowledge and awareness – multidisciplinary knowledge transfer in the scope of the PPCP workshop – an international contribution to the preservation of the UNESCO world heritage site Petra in Jordan.

Within the scope of the multidisciplinary Petra Painting Conservation Project (PPCP) (285789434), funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) a workshop was held on “Multidisciplinary Approaches in Cultural Heritage: Archaeology • Conservation • Analytical Sciences” both in English and Arabic in the Petra Archaeological Park, carried out between 17.-21.03. 2019. 20 Jordanian participants gained both theoretical as well as practical insights into multidisciplinary approaches in cultural heritage.

Experts on their respective fields conveyed knowledge in archaeology (Prof. Dr. Stephan G. Schmid, Polytimi Agoridou M.A.), conservation (Prof. Adrian Heritage FIIC ACR, Rebecca Tehrani M.A., Ayman Yaghi M.A., M.A.) and analytical sciences (Prof. Dr. Birgit Kanngießer, Maram Na’es M.Sc., M.A.). Participants received the opportunity to experience Nabataean wall painting in situ and to improve their aptitude through practicing manual, photographic and microscopic documentation. Furthermore, they had the chance to gain experience in analytical investigation methods on wall painting and sculpture. The overall approach of the workshop was based on ethical and preventive conservation considerations of cultural heritage.
