The Study Group for Roman Pottery (SGRP) was formed in 1971 to further the study of pottery of the Roman period in Britain. The group is a registered charity (no. 1185560) that provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest research, and of issues affecting the subject and its practitioners. The annual conference and regional meetings promote contact between specialists and the opportunity to handle pottery from different regions. The Group currently has over 170 members, from all over the British Isles, Europe and further afield.
Membership is open to all those interested in the study of Roman Pottery, whether actively working in, researching, interpreting or teaching the subject of Roman ceramics – both professionals and amateurs.
Information about the group is disseminated via a newsletter, which provides details of meetings, working parties, ongoing research and publications.
Members receive a copy of The Journal of Roman Pottery Studies, the peer reviewed journal produced by the Group.
The Study Group has produced a newsletter for the study of Roman Pottery, which sets out Roman pottery sector-driven priorities for the next five years, with a view to informing and influencing all archaeologists particularly those involved in the development of local, regional, and national research programmes, period-Specific Strategies and planning guidance at local authority and national level.
The Group would welcome comments upon its WebPages and any information that may be useful to Group members and those interested in aspects of pottery of the Roman period. Please send details to the Web Manager.
