We attended the Society for Museum Conference at Colchester Castle Museum (5th to 6th November 2014). We circulated information about the project to the attendees, and made a short announcement. It was a good opportunity to discuss the project and explain what we hope to achieve
Pottery fabric series are a key reference resource that are often curated by museums. These resources have been developed over many years, and are an essential tool for comparing assemblages from different archaeological excavations and a building block for synthetic research. We are in contact with colleagues in museums and assembling information on archaeological reference resources.
