Pottery in Medieval Southampton 1066-1510by Duncan H. Brown
Excavations carried out in Southampton between 1970 and 1980 produced almost 36,000, mostly well-stratified, sherds of post-Conquest pottery. This well-presented catalogue publishes and illustrates sherds recovered from nine excavations, preceded by a full discussion and catalogue of the numerous domestic and imported forms and fabrics. In addition, Duncan Brown discusses the chronology of the assemblage and the technology, production, distribution and function of the vessels. Finally, the volume examines the archaeological provenance of the finds and assesses the value of the assemblage for what it reveals about the domestic and industrial economy of medieval Southampton.
