The National Science Centre, Poland fund the project under the SONATINA funding scheme. The funding is addressed to researchers at the onset of their career offering them full-time employment in Polish research institutions and funding to carry out research projects, as well as the opportunity of a 3-6-month visiting fellowship outside of Poland.

The Institute of Archaeology, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, hosts my project. The unit guarantees access to the Traceological Laboratory with its high-quality equipment and reference collections. It supports the experimental archaeological work associated with the project.
