The SGRP will be running a day school to provide training in mortarium research. The workshop will be tailored to existing Roman pottery researchers or students looking to develop a greater understanding of mortaria research. The day will include a demonstration by Kay Hartley on how to take rubbings and recommendations on how to publish mortaria. A discussion of the Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire industries will be included as a case study. A large quantity of mortaria from these industries would be available for study and for researchers to take rubbings from for their own reference.
Specialist knowledge on the subject will be provided by Kay Hartley, Maggi Darling and Paul Buckland.
The meeting will be held at The Lincolnshire Archives St Rumbold Street, Lincoln, LN2 5AB.
