Italy and Britain between Mediterranean and Atlantic worlds: Leghorn – ‘an English port’
Gran Bretagna e Italia tra Mediterraneo e Atlantico: Livorno – ‘un porto inglese’
As part of the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology’s 40th anniversary celebrations, SPMA organised – together with the Italian journal Archeologia Postmedievale and in association with the Medieval Pottery Research Group – an international conference at the Tuscan port of Livorno in Italy in May 2006. The conference was held in the Magazzino dei Bottini dell’Olio, which was the state olive oil warehouse in the 18th century. MPRG organised a session entitled Ceramic Connections, and a field trip was made to the pottery centre and museum at Montelupo.
