This panel discusses recent findings and research challenges in archaeological ceramics within Southeast Asia and beyond, in both prehistoric and historical periods. Ceramics are the most durable, popular, and broadly distributed archaeological artifact within Southeast Asia. However, the complexity of social-historical-technological impacts on ceramic production, and the flow of ceramic objects within any given period and geographic range remains unknown. We invite presentations reporting recent findings and research on ceramic artefacts investigated or excavated from archaeological sites within Southeast Asia, as well as those that have been exchanged across long distances between neighbouring regions. We also encourage presentations on topics outside archaeology including issues in ceramic conservation and restoration, private or public museum collections and curation, and art history.
