Ceramic artifacts have an important role in archaeology for understanding the culture, technology and behavior of peoples of the past. They are among the most common artifacts to be found at an archaeological site, generally in the form of small fragments of broken pottery. Clay has been one of the most used materials for creating objects since manking walked on Earth: weapons, tools, furniture, houses and much more.

In our camp, pubblic can see our craftmen who, with tools reconstructed from archeological findings, create object made of clay, with differente techniques such as: hand working, wheel working and coil method.
