Details of the Lecture:  “Potteries of the Caribbean”

The Caribbean has a rich and varied past, often represented by ceramic objects. Ceramic objects are usually prolific on archaeological sites and therefore form a focus for many interdisciplinary studies. These remains can provide a wealth of information about past cultures, relating to style, manufacturing technology, and ultimately past trade and resource management. Stylistic and typological studies can be used to create relative chronologies for a site, while chemical and petrographic analyses are used to provenance the raw material(s) used in the manufacture of the object. Although fragments of ceramics are sometimes available for destructive analyses, many objects held in collections are not. Likewise, these precious objects cannot always be transported to laboratories for further study. 

Parking at the Bannatyne hotel is rather limited but there is plenty of parking on Southend Avenue which lead to the hotel. The hotel is not accessible by car directly off the main road (B6280), people must access via Southend Avenue.

Physical tickets are not required on the night but ticketing for RSC members and guests helps us with numbers to cater for, for tickets follow link below:
