Abstract
  • This analysis seeks to (1) establish a typology of the post-medieval ceramics from the Malkin Tower site, (2) determine vessel forms and extrapolate site function, and (3) establish a tentative chronology for the site. Over four hundred post-medieval ceramic artifacts from the Malkin Tower site were analysed via descriptive and paste analysis, thin section analysis, and a comparative literature review. A typology of the post-medieval wares was created based on the results of the analyses and parallels found in the literature. Vessel forms were identified wherever possible. The primary forms present in this assemblage are storage jars, milk-pans, cups, mugs, and bowls and shallow dishes. Most of the identified wares were in production from the mid-to-late 17th century through the 19th century.
