The Story of Pots

Thousands of pot sherds are recovered on archaeological sites. The sherds assist in revealing site chronology and can tell stories about the activities conducted at this place. Perhaps a craft workshop, or a ritual building or even a domestic kitchen?

Live the life of an archaeological ceramicist – sort your sherds, examine them and write observational notes, reconstruct a pot, identify its place of use and tell a story about the site. This activity is recommended for Year 7s. Session can be completed in a single period.
