A Standard for Pottery Studies in Archaeology just published!



MPRG are pleased to announce the publication of:

A Standard for Pottery Studies in Archaeology

This document was compiled by the three period-specific pottery study groups (Prehistoric Ceramic Research Group, Study Group for Roman Pottery, MPRG) and funded by Historic England with the aim of creating the first, comprehensive, inclusive standard for working with pottery. The Standard is intended for use in all types of archaeological project, including those run by community groups, professional contractors and research institutions.


This standard takes the reader through the various stages of an archaeological project, from planning and data collection through to report writing and archiving, with the intention of informing not only pottery specialists but also those who manage and monitor projects.

Hard copies will be available shortly from MPRG, PCRG and SGRP, please follow this link for a PDF copy:
