Call for Papers
From the introduction of the potter’s wheel, to the spread of factory production during the Industrial Revolution and beyond, the ceramic industries of the UK have been progressively transformed by waves of innovation.  This conference, which is being held jointly with the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology,  will focus on the wide range of technological, stylistic and functional advances introduced into potteries across the country from the 11th century to the present day. These are manifested in innovative developments in methods of manufacture, ceramic fabrics, new and increasingly specialized forms, decorative styles and techniques, and their collective effect on the place and role of ceramics within society.

Proposals for papers of up to 30 minutes in length (including time for questions) with a brief summary (up to 200 words) should be sent by 1 May 2019 to
