Change and Continuity in Igbo Pottery Forms and Ideas
Theories occupy significant position in the study and understanding of continuity and change. They direct the course of research by providing the theoretical framework on which to base explanation in the analysis and interpretation of data. Studies carried out so far by social theorists (archaeologists and anthropologists) both in the past and present have revealed that the dynamic nature of culture is caused by change from within and without involving various interrelated variables. Pottery as an aspect of culture is not left out by the wave of change. It has continued to change in line with the societal aspirations, either positively or negatively.
