publication comprises the first occasional paper produced
by the PCRG, originally published in 1991, and a slightly
revised version of the second, first published in 1992.
A joint reprint of the two papers, published in 1995,
sold out within eighteen months and still appears to
be much in demand. The new joint edition provides an
expanded section on fabric description, including specimen
'filled-out' samples of fabric record sheets, and an
updated bibliography. All revisions have been prepared
by members of the PCRG Committee.
This document, intended to be used by anybody studying
ceramics of the later prehistoric period, is primarily
concerned with the analysis of pottery. It is aimed
not only at specialists, but also at those generally
concerned with archaeological projects involving ceramics
of this period, particularly those involved with the
design and the funding of excavations or projects. It
is applicable both at general policy level and at the
level of providing a framework for case-by-case decisions.
