The recent decade witnessed a remarkable development in the field study of ethnoarchaeological ceramic, as more sophisticated reading has been presented with the framework of social theories and analyses and held multiple variables and different levels of mutability as a way to present a thoughtful understanding of social boundaries. The progressive stage of sequential development is included in the perception of ceramic changes, attached to technological changes, ceramic use, distribution, and social limitations. A number of Malaysian and Southeast Asian studies have coupled with culture and technical framework to examine manufacture variability, the dynamics of culture transformation among generation, and from another hand, the articulation between ceramic technology and social networks. The present article is a theoretical review of ethnoarchaeological issues conducted mainly to remedy ceramic issues within the cultural view. Such a study is an interactive part reflecting on the previous studies presented in the scope of ethnoarchaeology. The course aims to review several cultural issues that emerged in the ceramic field and link them to the influential external factors that cause the formation of several ceramic technologies. The current study contributes to the present social understanding of material culture and society from ethnoarchaeological perspective.
