Lecture
Event Details:

For the most part, Virginia potters in the 17th century produced lead-glazed earthenwares from the hematite-rich Tidewater clays. The Lawne’s Creek potter was identified by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources based on archaeological finds in Isle of Wight County. Little is known about this potting enterprise except that work produced here has been found on the eastern shore of Virginia as well as other sites. Archaeologist Alain Outlaw of the Wheatland Foundation in Williamsburg, Va., will present his findings on what is known about this potter through his recent archaeological work in Lawne’s Creek. $2 admission for adults.
