Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pottery in Archaeology covers a wide range of traditional and contemporary topics. In the process, it draws illustrative examples--photographs, line drawings and charts--from European and classical archaeology. The Appendix contains a number of useful tables....There is an extensive and up-to-date bibliography....I find this an attractive, well-organized, authoritative book....I gladly recommend it." Martha A. Latta, Canadian Journal of Archaeology

"Few will find this dry reading. The style is lively, often amusing, and should appeal to students....The subject becomes an interesting and valuable part of archaeological materials science and a fundamental part of archaeology." Times Higher Education Supplement

Book Description

Based on over fifty years of practical experience, this manual includes the most recent scientific developments and statistical techniques in the archaeological study of pottery, which has become increasingly important in providing information on the past.

Format: Paperback
orton and friends take the reader through all the aspects of the most common archaeological find: the pot sherd. at the end, you will know how to classify any random bit of ceramic you come across.
the book is very well written; it's amazing how the rather dry subject comes alive. very much a "practical knowledge" sort of read.
every serious dig should have one in their field house.
