Welcome to the PACP!

The Pan-American Ceramics Project (PACP) is an open-access resource for information on the production and use of pottery across the Americas from its earliest appearance to today. We seek to foster synthetic research across borders through the integration of ceramic data and to facilitate the inclusion of material culture in educational resources. We are building an inclusive international community of archaeologists, curators, potters, educators, community members, and other stakeholders from Canada to Argentina.

Land Acknowledgement!

We acknowledge that ASU sits on the ancestral homelands of those American Indian tribes that have inhabited this land for centuries, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) peoples. We also acknowledge and pay respect to Indigenous elders – past, present, and future – who have stewarded this land throughout the generations.
