Archaeology Southwest’s own Matt Peeples shares some of his experimental work with cooking pots.
Matt writes, “Food and cooking are some of the most important and conservative aspects of culture. Thus, archaeological examinations of cooking technology can often tell us quite a bit about the social and historical relationships among individuals and communities. Using an example from the Zuni region, I illustrate how detailed analyses focused on the production techniques and use of ceramic cooking and serving vessels can provide a perspective on population movement and the changing social landscape during a period of rapid aggregation in the late 13th century.”
We gather after 5:00 p.m., and presentations begin by 6:15 p.m. Outdoor seating is open and unreserved, but limited. Share tables and make new friends!
The event is free. Please support our hosts at Casa Vicente by ordering refreshments from the menu.
