Description

If These Pots Could Talk...

Pottery excavated from the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ban Chiang, Thailand is currently under intensive investigation here at the Penn Museum. Drs. White and Boileau are bringing the most current ceramic method and theory to bear on this famous collection, seeking insights into past societies of Southeast Asia. More than 500 vessels, most coming from human burials, provide a special data set with which to examine questions ranging from the social meaning of pots to the technological skill levels of the potters. New findings of unexpected technological diversity will be shared.

Feel free to bring your lunch.
