This report describes the Kiln Conference, whose purpose it is to examine Ancestral Puebloan pottery firing technology from a wide range of interests including potters, archaeologists, ethnobotanists and Native Americans. Since its inception the Kiln Conference has been sponsored by Crow Canyon Archaeological Center and the Museum of New Mexico, Office of Archaeological Studies. The conference incorporates archaeological data from excavated kiln sites, results from ceramic research analysis, modern pottery replication studies, information from contemporary NativeAmerican pottery firings, and botanical data concerning fuel wood use. The insights gained from these various studies were and continue to be used in subsequent archaeological research.
