We are most happy to announce that the DFG has evaluated our Cluster proposal ‘Understanding Written Artefacts: Material, Interaction and Transmission in Manuscript Cultures’ positively.

Within the cluster ARTEFACT PROFILING will focus on technical and methodological innovations, such as the enhancement of equipment which allows for in-field analyses, and the development of non- and minimal-invasive strategies. AP will attend to questions of origin and change, and will study the identity and transformation of materials used for the artefact’s production and their property-functionality relationships.
