NZ Historical Ceramics Database




Only the COMPLETE sites include both images and "counts" of the patterns and vessels (MNI) in this database.

Other sites excavated by Historic Places Trust, Department of Conservation and others in the past are included on the basis of the recorded presence (i.e. they show up in the reports with a count = "1") of particular patterns, makers marks etc. rather than a accurate count of all ceramic types present. Where more detailed information is available, this will be added in time. Click on the sites page to see more information on individual sites.

The following reports are available as examples:
