Ceramics Online Database

Our ceramics database was designed to make the complete pottery fabric and form type series for Worcestershire accessible online. The database is aimed at ceramic specialists and students, but can be used by anyone interested in the study of pottery, as it includes simple as well as advanced search facilities.

It contains information on all pottery used and made in Worcestershire from the Neolithic to the early post-medieval period, as well as the most commonly identified later post-medieval and modern fabrics and forms. Also included are high resolution fabric images and concordance information for other type series in surrounding counties.


Finds identification

We recommend that those seeking finds identification for objects found by chance or whilst metal detecting contact the Portable Antiquities Scheme or Museums Worcestershire.
