Important Pieces from Pottery

Last week for a Junior Archaeology Assignment, you all looked at important parts of cups, bowls, and pots in your home. Today I have a super cool video from archaeologist Kate (she is the boss of where I work each day!). She is going to tell you all about how we know what pieces of pottery we find are important and how she can use those pieces to decide if it was from a bowl, cup, or pot.

Okay friends! Kate wants to know if you can find things in your house with handles, bases, rims that curl out, and bumps on the side. Can you find things in your house that are painted?

Question of day

Were you able to choose the important pieces of pottery from the video? How did you know they were important?
