Together with photography, archaeological drawings are an integral part of the visual documentation in the excavation which can be immediately understood even by non-experts. This course is an introduction to drawing of ceramic sherds and vessels in archaeology. It aims at introducing archaeology students and draftspersons to the basic tools and skills they need to know to draw ceramics by hand. This guide is based on the experience gathered in numerous excavations carried out in different countries over several years. Starting with the tools and material needed, the course develops from drawing simple ceramic profiles to the representation of different types of decoration.
