Short, informal talks and discussions, moderated by Dr Branko van Oppen (APM), will concern the study of Hellenistic sealings and engraved gems, as well as museum presentation techniques of miniature artefacts. Confirmed speakers include Dr Marie-Françoise Boussac (Lyon University), Drs Ben van den Bercken (Museum of Antiquities, Leiden), Dr Jörn Lang (Institute for Classical Archaeology, University of Leipzig) and Joost Tangelder (Moobels virtual collections). An intensive workshop on presentation techniques of small objects such as sealings, engraved gems, rings and coins will be held in the Digital Museum Lab in collaboration with MeSch and other partners.
