Ceramics and Civilization, Volume VII

Ceramics and Civilization, Volume VII

A collection of 14 papers presented in a one day symposia held at the 98th Annual Meeting of the American Ceramic Society, Indianapolis, Indiana, April 1996. The contributors explore the variability of kilns both chronologically and geographically, stressing new data to emerge from recent archeological excavations at sites in North, Central, and South America. Topics in firing structures, brick and tile making and glass production are explored in the areas of neolithic Greece, the third millennium Indus valley, imperial China, the US Southwest, coastal Peru, during the Classic period of Mesoamerica, and in Renaissance Italy.
