The importance of the main "Middle Byzantine Production" (MBP), which includes several 12-13th c. pottery types known as "Fine sgraffito ware", Aegean Ware" etc., is seen both through its large distribution and by its predominance in 12th-13th c. AD shipwrecks. With the help of chemical analysis, we show in this paper that it was manufactured in Chalcis (Greece), the harbour of wealthy Byzantine Thebes, and later on a Venetian hub under the name of Negroponte. These results question the impact of the Frankish conquest on production and diffusion of goods, and raise issues for future research on consumption and food...

Yona Waksman and Alessandra Pecci, together with Nikos Kontogiannis, Giannis Vaxevannis, Stephie Skartsis from the Byzantine Ephoria of Chalkida, investigate medieval Byzantine amphorae for their origins and contents.

Byzantine and Ottoman table wares were also selected for analysis in the material of the American Excavations in the Athenian Agora, in collaboration with Joanita Vroom and Elli Tsavella, to investigate the pottery production in Athens in these periods.
