The ,, Vădastra 2000 Revitalization of the Romanian Ceramics Tradition" was financiary supported by the Archaeology Department of the Ministry of Culture (contract 19/05/07/2000).
- finding the most close clay source to those of the ceramic fragments analyzed ;
The principal method was to reconstruct the technological chains of making and burning the ceramic items, by this meaning the materials analysis and several tests of clay and finally making objects as close to the prehistoric ones as possible.
This experimental method is essential for the revival of the traditional ceramic art and also for the experimental archaeology.
The importance of the project
In Romania the traditional ceramic wasn't studied from the point of experimenting clays and ways of burning like does in European Countries for some years. She is still un unknown domain not only for the Romanian archaeologist but for the foreign ones. The research project initiated by the University of Arts Bucharest is trying to make known the values of prehistoric ceramic art from Romania to Europe , as well as the information about the color, the shape and technology employed. The Vădastra 2000 Project is the first international project in which UAB led the initiative and which involved several important European and American Universities .
