Black sea

This book presents the synthesis of a long-term study of ceramics of the 15th century found in the Ctimea. It is based on the analysis of large volumes of archaeological materials. The author proposes a detailed classification, typology and chronology of ceramics and clarifies some technological features of the local and imported wares. She also focuses on the directions and fluxes of ceramics trade, and on the factors which influenced the development of the local pottery production in late medieval Crimea.
