Description

The traditional task allocated to the pottery recovered on excavations is to determine the chronology of occupation. This is done by a complex process of typological seriation in relation to context. However, with the aid of proper research methodology, pottery is capable of informing us about social, economic and cultural aspects of ancient life.
