Ceramics and Related Collections

Humanities Faculty Research Theme

The University of Pretoria holds one of the largest collections of ceramics in South Africa, a significant amount of these coming the Kruger National Park and the World Heritage Site of Mapungubwe. The development of a new specialist ceramic laboratory and engagement with modern potters in southern Africa will help towards understanding how ceramics were made and used in the past.
