We’re pleased to announce that a new online pottery resource is now live and available for use. The website of the Kay Hartley Mortarium Archive Project promises to be a hugely useful resource for those of us encountering stamped mortaria on a regular basis.
The first stage of the project makes available digital scans of the archive recording cards Kay uses and the digital data for potters working in the industries based at Verulamium with the related industry in London, at Mancetter-Hartshill and in Lincolnshire and scans of the best rubbings of the stamps of these potters. It is possible to search and filter the data via an online map interface, to download the rubbings, and to see distribution maps of each potter as well as download the datasets behind the website. More industries will be added to this website as the project progresses.
The SGRP has been happy to fund part of this work and takes this opportunity to congratulate the project team on a wonderful achievement!
