Congrès, colloques, réunions


5-6 juin 2015




This workshop takes place in the context of the archaeological research project „Mobilities, Entanglements and Transformations in Neolithic Societies on the Swiss Plateau (3900-3500 BC)“

It aims at a deeper understanding of various itineraries of pottery and different forms of human mobilities in which pottery is relevant, bringing together archaeological and anthropological perspectives. For thousands of years, pottery has been an important part of many societies’ material culture and therefore a major research topic in both disciplines. [...]


Workshops’ main objectives
- Linking actor-centred and object-centred perspectives
- Exchanging knowledge about pottery production, distribution, consumption
- Linking pottery practices and regimes of mobility
- Discussing raw material use, technology, styles and transformation processes
