Potter watching open fire and archaeological trench in the area

Dr. Roddick on long “genealogies of practice” in the Lake Titicaca basin

Dr. Roddick and his colleague François Cuynet (Sorbonne Université, Paris, France) have published an article in the Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory. Their article, “Genealogies and Juxtapositions: Traces of Potting Communities and Firing Facilities in Lake Titicaca Basin” explores the deep history of craft production in the high altitude Lake Titicaca basin of South America, by looking at the ephemeral traces of pottery firing spaces over 2,000 years. They also develop a new way to think about pottery practices over the long term and explore what it means to compare contemporary crafting and those from the deep past.
