Doctoral position : lead in monumental constructions (12th-19th c.)
The first objective of the thesis will be to carry out an archaeological inventory of lead elements used in construction from the 12th to the 19th century. The second objective of the thesis will be to gather a corpus of texts (manuscripts or edited) dealing with the supply, use and processing of lead in the studied monuments. The third objective of the thesis will focus on the archaeometric part of the project consisting in elemental and isotopic analyses on construction leads in order to characterize the different sources of lead used in construction and their evolution over time.
