An Introduction to Archaeological Ceramics

Published Tuesday, 21st February 2017

Ever wondered how archaeologists can tell yesterday's flowerpot from a Roman relic?

Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service will be running a 3-part evening course, led by the WAAS Finds team's Rob Hedge, introducing ceramics in archaeology. Covering identification, recording and the perennial question: what exactly is so interesting about broken old pots anyway?!

The course runs over three Thursdays at The Hive, from 7-9pm, beginning on Thursday 23 February and ending on Thursday 9 March.

Rob Hedge, Archaeologist, said: "Whenever we show people old pottery when we're out at digs or during tours people are fascinated and often ask us how we know what they are. Over the three weeks we'll explain about it with the help of lots of real examples we've found."

Places are £25 and need to be booked in advance.
