The Science of Pottery Lecture

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Speakers: David R. Abbott, Associate Professor, Arizona State University, and Joshua Watts, Postdoctoral Researcher, Arizona State University

Because archaeological data on early markets are scarce and difficult to interpret, archaeologists have been forced to adopt new analytical approaches. This presentation will focus on ways Abbott and Watts have worked to integrate traditional ceramic analyses with innovative petrographic and chemical techniques, and have adopted computational agent-based modeling methods to offer new perspectives on the organization of Hohokam pottery production and distribution in the Phoenix Basin.

Pueblo Grande Museum’s lecture series, The Science of Pottery: Archaeological Research and Modern Examples, will be held every Friday during the month of February as part of the 4th Annual Arizona Scitech Festival.  These lectures are free and open to the public.  Visit our Calendar of Events page at pueblogrande.com for more SciTech events at Pueblo Grande Museum.
