Using mostly White Painted Ware as evidence, Dr. Gagne  identifies six levels of directive participation by experienced potters whose trainees range in age  from young children to adults. The lecture explores new ground in the field of ancient ceramics.

The Fruits of Migration: Understanding the Early Transcaucasian Culture and Its Socio-Economic Impact on the Near East

Sponsored by AIA Ottawa, Canadian Institute for Mediterranean Studies

AIA Society Event: Ottawa, ON

Tuesday, December 11, 2012 - 7:30pm

Location:
Library and Archives Canada
395 Wellington St
Ottawa
Canada

Stephen Batiuk, University of Toronto, discusses the role that viticulture (grape and wine production) played in the Early Bronze Age (3200-2000 BCE)  migration of the Early Transcausasian Culture into eastern and Syro-Anatolia. The migrants were able to maintain cultural independence in their new home regions for almost 1000 years. The archaeological record reflects the changes that occur as wine transforms from a luxury item to a secular commodity in the local political economies of the time.
