Author Topic: Pottery for Metal detectorists  (Read 984 times)
« on: June 21, 2009, 04:38:28 PM »

One of the key pieces of info about detecting sites for me is the distribution of pottery on sites and this can be a good indicator of the metal finds to come. Pottery In Britain by Lloyd and Jennifer Lang is the perfect book to have as a starting point for those of you who would like to learn a little more and not get bogged down in jargon. It covers the periods from the Neolithic thru to 1900ad and everything inbetween. Many illustrations along with about a 150 pictures of different sherds show a good spread of basic knowledge of the subject that will give you a working knowledge of what is in the field. Pottery is a huge subject and if you would like to know your Tin glaze wares from your Stone ware this is a great book to start you off.
