I am back in beautiful Zagreb and will be spending the next few days with friends and colleagues working in the AMZ. During this trip I will be finishing my data collection for the site of Surčin and will be using my time here as an opportunity to write up some thoughts about the material whilst it is sat in front of me.
These are the questions that I shall be pondering (whilst sat in the museum basement surrounded by pots):
- How does creativity present itself in the crafting of these vessels?
- What is the social significance of this and what does this tell me about the people who were making and using the urns?
- Finally, what can this bring to an understanding of creativity in the contemporary world?
Some BIG but extremely worthwhile questions…..
