Learning from Pots – The Role of Ceramics in Archaeology

Archaeologists routinely excavate considerable quantities of pottery from the Roman period onwards. This module teaches you the practicalities of studying archaeological ceramics and how pottery can enrich our understanding of past societies. By working with professional ceramics specialists, you will learn the principles of identifying pottery, and will receive tuition and hands-on experience in basic methods of recording and interpretation. It will be of interest to students of archaeology, members of archaeological societies, voluntary workers and professionals wishing to gain experience in finds study.

Saturday 3rd Oct 2009 10am-5pm
