Medieval Ceramics is the journal of the Medieval Pottery Research Group. This page contains volumes of the journal which are now out of print – as we run out of hard copies of later editions, more will appear here. Hard copies of in print journals, as well as of our Occasional Papers can be purchased from the Medieval Pottery Research Group.
We have also uploaded a copy of the Standard for Pottery Studies in Archaeology, which was published in 2016.
Copyright of the papers lies with the authors and MPRG. Please contact the editor (firstname.lastname@example.org) should you wish to reproduce any content.
MPRG was founded in 1975 to bring together people with an interest in the pottery vessels that were made, traded, and used in Europe between the end of the Roman period and the 16th century. Its remit has subsequently expanded to included the pottery of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries from both sides of the Atlantic and beyond, as well as post-Roman ceramic building materials.
The Medieval Pottery Research Group has a broad and diverse membership. The membership includes professional and non-professional archaeologists actively engaged in the study of ceramics as well as those with a general interest in ceramics or who are involved with local archaeology/history societies. Institutional members include universities, commercial archaeological field units and local, regional and national museums. The Group has strong overseas representation among its membership, in particular from the European Union and North America.
