Leiden Journal of Pottery Studies

The Leiden Journal of Pottery Studies (LJPS) is since 2004 the continuation of the former Newsletter of the Department of Pottery Technology (Leiden University).

The Leiden Journal of Pottery Studies includes articles, reports and notes on archaeological and anthropological investigations of pottery. Occasionally, book reviews are included. The LJPS reflects the ‘Leiden approach’ to pottery studies focused on the linkage of laboratory analysis with production studies, the use of ethnographic and ethnoarchaeological observation and experimental archaeology. The LJPS deals with the technology, function and style of ancient and modern traditional pottery.
