About this title


Stoneware provides vital evidence for regional and international trade, political and religious propaganda, social behaviour, living conditions and design trends. First developed in the Rhineland at the end of the 13th century, fully fused stoneware is a hard, non-porous ceramic, ideal for domerstic use. Heavily exported, its forms and ornamet became increasingly sophisticated from the Renaissance on, as the ware ceased to be made primarily as a utilitarian comodity. German stoneware provides an essential framework for chronology and social interpretations on archaeological sites from Britain and the continent to North America and beyond.
