Abstract

Ceramic studies can establish a cultures values, beliefs, way of life, artistic development, level of technology, trade, extent of influence, diet and health, dates, and religious doctrine. The examination of eight ceramic styles and their cultures helps to illustrate the importance of ceramics in the field of archaeology. The recreation of these eight styles aids in linking the modern ceramic artist with his or her global artistic predecessors and aids in examining the significance of ceramics in archaeology.
