Medieval Pottery Research Group Annual Conference 2012

21st - 23rd June
Douglas, Isle of Man

Organised by the Medieval Pottery Research Group in collaboration with Manx National Heritage and the Centre for Manx Studies, University of Liverpool

The conference will include dedicated handling sessions in which the Manx Museum will make available its ceramic collections for study and which will provide an occasion for participants to compare ceramic material from elsewhere that they have brought with them. The conference will coincide with a temporary exhibition in the Manx Museum on ‘the Kingdom of the Isles’.

The Isle of Man is rich in archaeological sites of all periods. In the two days after the conference optional visits to Manx archaeological sites will be arranged, with a special emphasis on the period from c AD 500 onwards.

There is a wide range of possible understandings and experience of marginality depending on time and place; this can be physical or socio-economic marginality. Papers are invited on any subject that can link ceramic assemblages with the theme.

Themes for the conference included:
