This event is open to the public and attendance is free. This annual conference focuses on both archaeological research and hands-on techniques in the fields of prehistoric pottery replication and experimental archaeology.

2016 swkc - our logo reproducedSouthwest Kiln's October 2019 schedule offers action suitable for all tastes and skill levels. Archaeological papers will be presented at Gila Pueblo, with outdoor demonstrations of prehistoric pottery technology expected in the central plaza of the Besh Ba Gowah archaeological site. For attendees who are more hands-on, outdoor pottery firings are scheduled in the Timber Camp campground area of the Tonto National Forest. A group camp site has also been reserved at Timber Camp so that the flow of ideas can continue long after the pottery has been fired. The conference closes on Sunday, October 6, with a field trip to Kinishba Ruins.
