Event description

Description

The Geoff Egan Memorial Lecture for 2016 will be given by David Barker, freelance ceramics specialist and former President of the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology

‘Business as Usual’: the Great War and the ceramics trade

The events of 1914 – 1919 had a dramatic impact upon all aspects of British life, not least upon its manufacturing industries. The pottery industry was not alone in feeling the effects of labour shortages - and the need to fill male roles with women workers – and it suffered from the closure of markets, shortages of raw materials and difficulties in pursuing the all-important export trade. At the same time, the War had some transformational effects upon the industry and upon the consumption of ceramics that were far from negative.

The lecture will be preceded by the SPMA's AGM and a drinks reception, kindly sponsored by Taylor & Francis, publishers of Post-Medieval Archaeology

Tickets are FREE but spaces will be limited, so please reserve your ticket here.

SPMA AGM 5.30pm, Wine Reception 6.00pm, Lecture 7.00pm

Voluntary donations to the SPMA's Community Engagement Award fund are very welcome.
