Abstract/Description: For my research assistantship, I digitized drawings of ancient Greek pottery sketches that were made during earlier archaeological excursions. In addition, I have also learned a lot about ancient Greek pottery in general and the processes that went into making it, its uses, and how archaeologists go about excavating it thousands of years later. My supervisor specifically focuses on Mycenaean cooking vessels and from lessons with her combined with the digitizing of the drawings I am able to notice the subtle changes in the shape of the vessels as history progresses. Pottery is useful as archaeological evidence because one can find out many things by paying attention to its details such as when it was made, where it was made, who made it, and who used it and why. By digitizing the sketches taken in the field, the nuances can be more easily noticed and furthermore, it helps in the eventual creation of a digital database of which future archaeologists can go through to help identify pieces that they find.
