26 contributions divided into five thematic sections consider post-medieval pottery from the perspectives of local, regional and long-distance trade. Papers show the importance of connections and networking and provide an opportunity to compare concrete find situations across Europe – in both coastal as well as landlocked states.


About the Author

Gabriela Blažková studied archaeology and history at the Faculty of Arts of Charles University in Prague, where she earned her PhD in 2011. She works as a researcher at the Institute of Archaeology of the Czech Academy of Sciences in Prague and lectures at Charles University. She is a significant contributor to the development of post-medieval archaeology in Central Europe. Her research focuses on late medieval and early modern archaeology with an emphasis on material culture. She has long been involved in archaeometric research of ceramic and glass finds. She is a member of the editorial boards of several international journals. She participates in rescue archaeological excavations.

Kristýna Matějková studied archaeology at Masaryk University in Brno (Czech Republic) and entered the doctoral programme at Charles University in Prague with the aim of processing early modern pottery assemblages. She is the director of the Centre for Processing, Documentation and Recording of Archaeological Finds, which is focused on laboratory processing and the conservation of objects gained from archaeological excavations. Her research is currently centred on the popularization of archaeology and interactive childhood education as part of the HistoryPark project.

Tânia Manuel Casimiro graduated in History and Archaeology from NOVA University of Lisbon, completed an MA in Artefact Studies at University College of London and returned to NOVA for her PhD in 2011. Her research focuses on the early modern period and contemporary global contacts of people and objects. On a more theoretical level, she deals with frameworks concerning how individuals and things relate and interact in the formation of identities, and how they can reflect globalized ontologies. She is currently a researcher at NOVA University of Lisbon (HTC-CFE) funded by FCT through the project [DL57/2016/CP1453/CT0084].

Ricardo Costeira da Silva is a lecturer at the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and a researcher at the Centre of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Coimbra (Portugal). He has worked as a contract archaeologist, coordinating several archaeological interventions, especially in urban environments. His PhD (2016) provides a holistic longue durée vision of urban transformations in Coimbra – from the Roman 1st century AD to the early modern 17th century. He is currently engaged in developing scientific research projects in the field of Roman archaeology and on post-medieval material culture.
