Photographs largely depicting Andreas Joseph Andrews, a conservator in the Department of Anthropology, working with pottery and other artifacts in his laboratory. There are also images of Dr. Owen Rye and William Potts conducting laboratory tests as part of an Ancient Technology Project study of ceramic firing. The photographs were made in May 1973, probably by a Smithsonian photographer.
