Prehistoric Pottery Across the Baltic

Regions, Influences and Methods

Paul Eklöv Pettersson


Prehistoric connections and interactions across the Baltic Sea are discussed through pottery and ceramic materials in this volume. Included are nine articles by thirteen authors from the countries around and connected to the Baltic Sea. The articlescover a timescale ranging from the Neolithic to the late Iron Age and subjects including craft traditions, metallurgical production patterns, Neolithisation processes, grave traditions and cultural spheres. Methodological perspectives include studies of morphology, material, decorations and distribution patterns as well as experimental and laboratory analysis. The studied ceramic objects include miniature pots, pitchers, crucibles, tuyères, drinking vessels and tableware from the region around the Baltic Sea.
