SAS Student Research Travel Grant Winner for the Spring 2018 Cycle

Congratulations to our winner of the SAS Student Research Travel Grant - 

Ana Franjić from the UCL Institute of Archaeology!

"My doctoral project, entitled Iron Age Glass Technology in South East Europe, examines glassmaking and glass use on the territory of present-day Croatia, Slovenia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina during the first millennium BCE. The SAS Student Research International Travel Award helped me conduct LA-ICP-MS analysis of my samples at the Department of Geoscience, Aarhus University. The high resolution of the newly acquired data allowed me to quantify the sand-related trace elements, which are informative of the source of the raw glass. The results will hopefully enable me to link the material to one of the few primary glass workshops operating in the Mediterranean during this period. Ultimately, the results of this work will contribute to our broader understanding of glass use in Iron Age Europe" 

  • Keep an eye out for updates on Ana's research in forthcoming issues of the SAS Bulletin later this spring and over the summer.
