The study of the handicraft activity of a Tigre potter in the village of Afta, in the Foro-Wi’a subregion, contributed to register and to report a case of in danger tradi-tion: low-firing pottery manufacturing activities that have never been recorded in detail in this region. The case study is examined in the general context of geograph-ical distributions of traditional pottery manufacturing and related traditions – such as food cuisine – in the Northern Horn of Africa, and in relation with past practices, with the aim also to identify continuity and change and to provide new insights for archaeologists.
