Description

Pottery is the most abundant artifact recovered on most archaeological excavations and serves many purposes, most of all to determine chronology and the nature of the context. Proper methods of collection, sorting, processing, research and publication are needed in order to extract the maximum information from the pottery, both during and after the excavation.
