MPRG is running a two-day training course in York on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 April 2020.
The course comprises four sessions spread over two days, with each session being devoted to a specific theme. Starting with an introduction to the pottery of York and Yorkshire delegates will be lead from basic identification of medieval and post-medieval pottery, through to more specific classifications according to fabric and form types, the selection of samples for scientific analysis and finally, reporting on their findings.
The training is open to anyone who would like to develop their knowledge of pottery and its study. We would particularly welcome those who monitor or commission pottery reports or manage pottery specialists, museum archaeologists and others who curate archaeological collections of pottery, students/junior practitioners and members of local societies and community groups.
The Group is grateful to Anne Jenner and York Archaeological Trust for offering to host the course and for making their collections of pottery available for examination.
