Knowledge transfer & competence
In relation to the complexity of the ceramic finds, the introduction of ceramic phenomenon in the short archaeological basic education is generally negligible. Nevertheless, undergraduate archaeologists are believed to have sufficient knowledge to be able to interpret ceramic finds from a 6000 year period (in Sweden). The knowledge acquired must necessarily be schematic and is often limited to the dating of individual characteristics. The broader functional interpretation and the specific source criticism that the work with ceramic finds requires is largely lacking. Post-graduate courses and assistance in the design of scientific programs etc. can increase knowledge of and interest in ceramics in general and the local ceramic history in particular.
Adapted courses in ceramology (the doctrine of ceramics as a material and cultural-historical object) and in the registration of ceramics. Specific content, duration, number of course participants etc. agreed between SKEA and the client.
Education and supervision of archaeological staff in recording techniques.
Factual examination of texts relating to ceramic materials and issues.
SKEA has ass. prof. competence and pedagogical experience from university teaching and doctoral student supervision in several European countries as well as broad international literature insight.
