Saturday Sampler Tour | Clay - The Plastic of Antiquity

Saturday, June 16, 2018
2:00-3:00 PM
Kelsey Museum of Archaeology Map
Whether functional or decorative, small or large, clay was the material of choice for many artifacts. But what can pottery found at archaeological sites tell us? On this tour, explore examples of a variety of artifacts created by different methods (hand-built, wheel-made, mold-made) and decorated in different ways. Today, new technology can even tell us where the clays for each artifact were sourced and the significance of this choice. Artifact highlights include large Roman amphoras, finely molded figurines, well-used cooking pots, and fine dishware.

Saturday Sampler tours are free and open to all visitors. If you are a person with a disability who requires an accommodation to attend this tour, please contact the education office (734-647-4167) at least two weeks in advance. We ask for advance notice as some accommodations may require more time for the University to arrange.
