Excavations in the Donyatt potteries

Front Cover
Donyatt, in Somerset, has been the site of continuous pottery production from the 13th century. Its products had a wide distribution, throughout the west country, to London and beyond. This comprehensive account of the Donyatt industry includes a thorough study of the pots and their changing styles and decoration, the development of their kilns, the lives and working conditions of the potters, and their migrations to and from other potteries. It is based on the author's extensive excavations and on study of rich documentary sources, and combines two sorts of information rarely so adequately available for any site or industry.
