Gabriella Bachi

The institute's ceramic study collection is intended primarily as a teaching tool. Pottery is an archaeologist's bread and butter. Much of our chronology and understanding of culture and historical process is in some way dependent on an understanding of pottery--how it differs from region to region and how it changes over time. The collection includes several hundred complete and intact vessels from the archaeological periods up to the end of the Iron Age (circa 600-500 BCE). The great majority of forms in use during these periods are represented, being housed in glass vitrines organized in chronological order. An extensive shard collection is also available, also arranged chronologically. Shards are what archaeologists usually encounter in the field and this is what students need to be able to identify. The study collection may be seen by appointment with Gabriella Bachi.
