19 October 2016 – How Shards Talk


How Shards Talk

Revealing a wealth of information to archeologists and historians

Ever wonder why archaeologists love a bucket full of broken pot shards? There’s arguably more research and cultural data available from an assemblage of fragmented shards than a prized set of complete pots. This talk explains how archaeologists maximize data collection from shards.

This lecture is jointly organized by SEACS and NLB. Speaking at this talk will be Dr. D. Kyle Latinis, a Visiting Fellow at the Nalanda-Sriwijaya Centre, ISEAS – Yusof Ishak Institute, Singapore. He is the Director of the annual NSC Archaeological Field School.
