This article presents an ethnoarchaeological study of Twa potter communities in southern Rwanda. The study was conducted in summer 2007 and explored pottery production within four Twa communities. Field research consisted of recording production sequences within the communities and conducting individual interviews with 18 potters. Drawing from the field data, this article critically considers the archaeological implications of this ethnoarchaeological research, and more specifically how the results of the study support and contradict previous archaeological assumptions concerning Twa pottery.
