Ceramic construction and firing practices in the upper Yadkin River Valley

Pierce Wright, a sophomore and soon-to-be major, is starting a project that will explore two characteristics of pottery shards found during the 2011 and 2012 surface collections at site 31Yd173: firing characteristics and construction techniques. He is going to record the oxidation patterns on shards and determine whether coiling can be seen on any shards.
