ANTH-P 645: POTS AND PEOPLE (3 credits)


Pottery has often been utilized to help understand past societies. In this course we take an archaeological approach to understanding how people make, use, and think about pottery. We make our own pots from wild clays and cook a meal in traditional ceramic pots. We consider how experimentation, ethnohistorical data and anthropological theory can work together to produce insights into past life-ways.
