A Dated Type Series of London Medieval Pottery, Part 5 : Shelly-sandy ware and the greyware industries Hardback
Part of the MOLAS MONOGRAPH series
An essential survey for all interested in the pottery of the London area, this study charts the development, peak and decline of two ceramic traditions: the shelly wares of c 1140-1220, mainly city-based but reaching Scotland and across the North Sea to Norway, and the greywares of c 1170-1350, widely used in the city and even more so in its hinterland.
In addition to fabric analyses, form typologies, a gazetteer of find spots and scientific data, the study includes a summary of greyware production centres, and considers function, use, marketing of medieval pottery and the chronology of selected consumer sites in London and its region.
