Vassilis Politakis in collaboration with archaeological research centers, academic professors, universities and archaeologists practices experimental archaeology.

The aim is the investigation of Bronze Age ceramic technology in Greece, first as regards both the raw materials and the firing techniques used. Based on the analytical data, the second phase is an attempt at reproducing pottery through all the stages of the production process.
Apart from the identification of the materials and techniques, we also attempt an aesthetic rendition, always based on the means available during the periods to which the pottery groups belong.

There have been efforts at international level to reproduce these techniques, but often the accuracy of the reproduction is doubtful, or modern chemicals, incompatible with the ancient period in question, have been used during the reproduction process.
