Anglo-Saxon and early Medieval
Little Anglo-Saxon and Early Medieval pottery survives. Many of the wares were tempered with chaff, sand or coarsely ground shells, which meant that the finished vessels were more susceptible to breakages than vessels made with finer wares. Chaff tempered vessels often had voids in their body, where the organic material had burned away.
Anglo-Saxon and Early Medieval ceramics were hand shaped, rather than wheel-turned, and have very simple forms, such as cooking pots and jars, jugs and pitchers, and crucibles.
The Museum of London collection includes 156 pieces of Anglo-Saxon and Early Medieval ceramic.
