Archaeological Ceramics

In this course students will have lectures and handle clays in order to gain a better understanding of the structure and properties of clay minerals and pottery manufacturing techniques. They will also handle ancient pottery and discuss what information this can yield about ceramic technology, provenance and date and wider social interpretations such as the organisation of production, exchange and consumption.
