Simulating Pottery Breakage in Archaeological Contexts

Abstract

Formation processes, or the ways that ancient sites are formed, are of central interest to archaeology. Experimental archaeology has been useful in connecting and correlating human behavior with patterns in the archaeological record and has proved to be a growing field within the discipline. This project experiments with the breakage of modern pottery to simulate the structure of sherd assemblages in archaeological contexts. The results are analyzed with photogrammetry or 3D imagery and framework is outlined that can guide the interpretation of archaeological assemblages.
