9780226711164: Pottery Analysis: A Sourcebook
Review:

""Pottery Analysis" may be the most up-to-date synthesis of current research on pottery as a broader field and, as such, continues to be cited in new pottery studies. . . . Many archaeologists will certainly want to have access to Price's book for its extensive treatment of both technical and anthropological issues related to pottery."--Ralph Hawkins "Near East Archaeological Society Bulletin "

From the Publisher:

A rich and comprehensive sourcebook, "Pottery Analysis" draws together diverse approaches to the study of pottery - archaeological, ethnographic, stylistic, functional, and physicochemical. Prudence M. Rice uses pottery as a starting point for insights into people and culture and examines in detail the methods for studying these fired clay vessels that have been used worldwide from prehistoric times to the present. "Pottery Analysis" is a classic in its field as well as an invaluable reference for all students of archaeology and ancient culture.
