Clay Virtual Talk – Jaclyn Eckersley – Exploring the Prehistoric Southwest through Ceramics
Tuesday, June 9th, 7 – 8pm
Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Southwest, learn more about the master potters and people of 1000 years ago. In this presentation Jaclyn discusses how archaeologists learn about prehistoric peoples of the American Southwest through the study of ceramic artifacts. Using something physical like pottery, archaeologists study nonmaterial elements of the past, elements including social connections, migrations, power, and ritual.
Jaclyn Eckersley holds an MA in Archaeology from Brigham Young University, where she studied prehistoric ceramics from the American Southwest (Southeastern Utah). Between field work in the Utah desert and analyzing prehistoric pottery, she took as many ceramics classes as possible. She joined the Clay Art Center as the Development Assistant after graduating and working as an archaeologist in the Midwest.
