This volume brings together a number of papers that were presented at the international symposium on Pots, Workshops and Early Iron Age Society. Function and Role of Ceramics in Early Greece organised by the University of Athens (UoA) and the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB), and held at the Université libre de Bruxelles in November 2013. The papers are divided in five parts, following the themes of the conference: production and workshops, context and function, pottery and rituals, mobility and interaction, iconography and early society. Emphasis is placed on ancient ceramics as valuable testimonies to human expressions, reflecting the needs, aspirations and ideas of the societies that produced and used them.
