Recent Approaches to the Study of Pottery: from Prehistory to Byzantine Times

A workshop co-organized by
the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the Democritus University of Thrace,
the British School at Athens, and the University of Cincinnati

University of Thessaloniki
11th -12th December 2009

A growing number of studies that apply contemporary theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of pottery from Greek sites appeared during the last years. They clearly show the potential of pottery in the study of past human societies when approached in less conventional theoretical and methodological ways. The variety of approaches and topics is remarkable. It is equally important, however, that modern trends usually encountered in the study of prehistoric pottery in Greece become gradually more common to the study of Archaic, Classical, Roman and Byzantine pottery. For these reasons, the current workshop seeks to provide the opportunity to scholars working on different periods, from Prehistory to Byzantine times, to discuss and exchange their experience. It will also give the chance to the colleagues attending the workshop to keep up with and to discuss new trends in pottery studies.

The workshop will take place on 11th -12th December 2009 at the Cast Museum Hall, Faculty of Philosophy, New Building, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and it will be open to attend. It is jointly organized by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the Democritus University of Thrace, the British School at Athens, and the University of Cincinnati.
