NZ Historical Ceramics Database




The database information is based on archaeological recovery of ceramic fragments from different archaeological sites (currently most of the sites are in or near Auckland, New Zealand). The information is variable in availability and quality (click here for further information about the description of availability of site information). Despite these problems, we are endeavouring to add information from all sources.
