Mink van IJzendoorn has started studying Byzantine ceramics for his Master thesis under the supervision of Dr Joanita Vroom at the Faculty of Archaeology of Leiden University. In 2016 he finished his thesis with the title ‘Mapping the Ceramics: A comparative and quantified study of the distribution of Champlevé Ware in the Mediterranean Region and in the Near East during the Middle Byzantine period (ca. late 12th-early 13th century)’. Recently he has published an article on the same subject in In & Around: Ceramiche e comunità (Florence, 2016, with J. Vroom).
