Talk: Medieval Export Trade in our area

Winterbourne Medieval Barn

Pieces of Ham Green Ware were found at the Barn by Wessex Archaeology in 2017. What is the cultural significance behind the use of Ham Green jugs? How did the small settlement of Pill become famous for pottery exports in Medieval times? What land and river routes were important for trade in the 12th and 13th centuries? Dundry Stone was used in the Bristol region, and exported to South Wales and Southern Ireland during these times. How was the stone moved and why?

And what has St Michael got to do with all of this??

Philip Ashford explores these questions and more in this talk on Medieval trade in Ham Green Pottery and Dundry Stone and its cultural, economic and archaeological significance in our local area.

The Barn will be open from 6:30pm with the talk starting at 7pm. The bar will be available on arrival. Free parking on site.

The talk is also available online as a livestream on zoom. Tickets are £7.50 (for the livestream this is per device rather than per person). For the livestream, we will email you the Zoom joining link at 6pm. Book online via the Barn website below or on Ticketsource.
