An Ancient Pottery Masterclass
Today the excavation project's founder and Emeritus Professor of Classical Archaeology at the University of Sydney, J Richard Green gave the team a masterclass in recognising ceramic forms, decorations and pot profiles.
We discussed a range of Roman and medieval ceramic forms found on the site, including medieval sgraffito production in Paphos.
The team learned about the importance of ceramic interpretation to our understanding of the site. Although most of our ceramics specialist team are not in Cyprus this season, the preliminary sorting done now will be of great benefit to them next season.
