dc.description.abstractThe objective of this thesis is to research the invention and innovation of pottery technology in the Pre-Pottery Neolithic B, in particular the Late and Final PrePottery Neolithic B and Early Pottery Neolithic in the Near East. My approach will involve examining the various factors that are involved with the origins of clay vessel manufacture including: 1) the context of this event like the Pre-Pottery Neolithic B and Early Pottei7 Neolithic Societies; 2) the history of clay vessel manufacture such as the sporadic invention of pottery before its widespread adoption; 3) preceding technology; 4) circulation of goods and cultural and technological change; 5) settlement pattern change and movements of people; 6) domestication of animals and emergence of pastoralism; 7) ethno-archaeological comparisons; 8) ecological conditions; 9) social choice. The origins of pottery technology on a large scale are interrelated to all of these factors, and would not have emerged without all of these circumstances in place.en_US
