Understanding the past

The Department of Anthropology and Archaeology of The University of Pretoria and the honours students will be making their mark in disseminating archaeological knowledge to the public through a ceramic exhibition. Apart from the aesthetic ceramics on show, the exhibition aims at illustrating how ethno-archaeology and experimental archaeology play important roles in the interpretation of past societies.
