Medieval Pottery Research Group : Ceramic archives and research potential 2020



This document details the results of a pilot study carried out by the author into potential research projects in the area of medieval and later ceramics. The initiative is intended to address two major issues in ceramic studies; the threats to archaeological archives resulting from the long-term underfunding of local and regional museums in the UK and the shortage of qualified and experienced technicians or specialists who can produce reports on medieval and later pottery for commercial, amateur/voluntary and academic clients. The document begins with a brief discussion of the issues before moving on to a range of possible MA and PhD level projects drawn from northern England. It is hoped that, in the future, further projects will be added based upon other geographical areas of the UK and perhaps even Europe. Comments and feedback on this project and ways in which it might be developed are welcome.
