Workshops on the methodology of working with settlement ceramics in Cairo

A workshop held at the PCMA UW Research Centre in Cairo delved into the methodology of working with settlement ceramics. This is the first of the planned meetings. It was the first in a series aimed at pottery specialists working in Egypt.

The “Working Group on Setlement Ceramics’ Best Practices” meeting was organized by Anna Wodzińska, head of the Research Centre in Cairo, and Leslie Anne Warden from Roanoke College (USA). The workshops are designed to foster exchange and invigorate discussions on the methods and challenges of working with ceramics during archaeological fieldwork. They are set to culminate in preparing guidelines on the best practices in ceramic documentation during excavations, to be used by pottery specialists and expedition directors.

The workshop took place on 3rd and 4th March. Program: PDF.
