Ceramic and Society

The working group focusses on ceramics as a prominent part of material culture. Its unique position in the archaeological record provides a variety of insights into past human societies, their cultural expressions, as well as establishing and studying specific networks. Without devoting itself to particular time periods or regions, the aim is to study ceramics as a cultural phenomenon.

The “Ceramic and society” working group started in 2014 in order to create a common ground for students and academics to exchange knowledge and experience of working with ceramics. Always open for new members doing research within differing contexts, it provides an environment for discussing ceramics, not necessarily concentrating exclusively on pottery.

From typology to archaeometrics and from Anatolia to Jutland the group constantly aims at developing a broader understanding of ceramics and their place in past human societies.
