Archaeology in full swing!!

Dr. Georgia Bonny Bazemore and Dr Andrew Goldman teach first year Archaeologist Abby Monta about Roman Pottery

  1. Note from Dr. Goldman: Dr. Bazemore's collected material are providing a terrific opportunity to teach these newcomers how to distinguish different types of pottery. We're examining the pieces to study form (= morphology), fabric (= the interior composition of the clay), surface treatment (i.e. slips, glazes) and more. The best way to do this is to sit down and examine lots of pottery, which we've been doing for several days now as we work through the Rantidi material.
