A Dated Type Series of London Medieval Pottery: Part 5, Shelly-Sandy Ware and the Greyware Industries Aby Lyn Blackmore and Jacqueline Pearce An essential survey for all interested in the pottery of the London area, this study charts the development, peak and decline of two ceramic traditions: the shelly wares of c 11401220 and the greywares of c 11701350. While mainly in the form of unglazed and utilitarian pottery, both types were highly important in their day, an essential foil to the major glazed ware industries considered in previous volumes of the London type-series. In addition to fabric analyses and form typology, the study considers the wider context of contemporary London and its region, drawing together the various pottery types used in the area and updating where appropriate. Thematic chapters, supported by a gazetteer of find spots and scientific data, present a detailed consideration of the chronology of the consumer sites used for the quantification, and discuss the function and marketing of the two ware types.
The distribution of shelly-sandy ware is shown to be mainly city-based but reached Scotland and across the North Sea to Norway, while the greywares were widely used in the city and even more so in its hinterland.
