Anth 612: Advanced Ceramic Analysis
This course is designed to teach methods and techniques for the analysis of ceramic materials from prehistoric sites by combining theory and analytical procedures with hands-on experience in the laboratory. Students will survey a variety of "high tech" and "low tech" approaches to ceramic analysis so as to move beyond the traditional chronological concerns of typology to issues of production, exchange, function, design, social interaction, and technological and stylistic evolution. Students will also examine quantitative methods for the manipulation and interpretation of ceramic data.
