Occasional Paper 4: Late Medieval Reduced Wares

‘Genius in a Cracked Pot’: Late Medieval Reduced Wares: A Regional Synthesis

by Anna Slowikowski


Funded by English Heritage the regional synthesis of Late Medieval Reduced ware draws together research on pottery from six production sites in the south-east Midlands. Detailed characterisation of the pottery, supported by petrological and chemical analyses, has shown that it is possible to distinguish the products from each site, both by fabric and form. Varying manufacturing techniques were identified and using archaeomagnetic dating, documentary evidence and the characteristics of the pottery a chronological sequence suggested for the study sites.
