Los Alfares Medievales de la Calle Hospital Viejo de Logrono (Paperback)
Sistematizacion de Sus Producciones (Siglos XIII-XV)
During the excavation of Hospital Viejo Street, up to three overlapping pottery workshops operating in the XIII, XIV and XV centuries were identified, with discrete spatial distributions and various production structures. These workshops were probably governed by Islamic potters, who abandoned them after the expulsion of the Moorish communityin 1502. We identified fifteen groups of earthenware, tin-glazed ware, glazed ware and luster-glazed ware, based on the ceramic pastes and processing methods used. From secondary criteria, we identified thirty-five basic forms, and multAle variants, of cooking, drinking, eating and storage vessels, along with auxiliary elements. The stratigraphic sequence of the site provides very tight timelines for the start and end of production.
