The theme of the day will be medieval pottery from the eastern counties, in particular distributions, both within and without the area. This will be a good opportunity to hear what’s been going on in East Anglia – it is over ten years since we last had East Anglian pottery as a theme. We will also have a chance to view the pottery from the Cambridgeshire pottery project.
Please let me know if you are coming, either email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
by phone (01234–294005 or mob. 07870–980834) or write to Anna Slowikowski, Albion Archaeology, St Mary’s Church, St Mary’s St., Bedford MK42 0AS. Or just come along on the day! There will be a charge of £2 to cover tea/coffee and biscuits. Please bring along any interesting (or not so interesting!) bits of pottery for viewing – it doesn’t have to be from East Anglia!
