Approaches to Archaeological Ceramics
Humans differ from any other species on this planet in our extensive ability to transform the natural world in order to ease our existence in it. By shaping stone, wood, and clay we make tools that increase our effectiveness in procuring and preparing food, in securing shelter, and in producing the conditions and comforts of life that we now view as necessary for our survival. We also produce goods to ornament our homes and bodies, designed according to cultural rules of esthetics, as well as objects necessary for the acknowledgment or ritual enactment of our religious beliefs.
