Building bridges:
a multidisciplinary approach to ceramic studies

May 1999,

The MPRG annual conference was held at Sheffield over two days in May 1999.

The aim was to promote collaboration and discussion across regional, chronological and institutional boundaries and stimulate fruitful dialogue. Delegates and speakers were encouraged from prehistoric, Roman and medieval interest groups.

Lectures broadly covered processing and interpretation of ceramics from deposition to final publication. Specific areas of discussion focused on cross-regional fabric studies; fabric archives; minimum standards of processing; methods of interpretation including formation processes and skeuomorphs; and new methods of communication using the internet and virtual reality.

Visits were arranged to view relevant sites and ceramics.

Some papers from this conference have been published in Medieval Ceramics 22–23
