Pieces of Ham Green Ware were found on our site by Wessex Archaeology in 2017; what is the story behind them and what has St Michael got to do with all of this? 
How was Ham Green Ware traded?
What is the cultural significance behind the use of Ham Green Jugs?
How did the small Settlement of Pill become famous for pottery exports?
How was Dundry Stone used in the Bristol region, South Wales and Southern Ireland during the 12th and 13th centuries?

Speaker Philip Ashford explores these questions and more in this talk on Medieval trade in Ham Green Pottery and Dundry Stone and it’s cultural, economic and archaeological significance in our local area.
