For those researchers working in the field of human history, the chronology of events remains a major element of reflection. Archaeologists have access to various techniques for dating archaeological sites or the objects found on those sites. There are two main categories of dating methods in archaeology : indirect or relative dating and absolute dating. Relative dating includes methods that rely on the analysis of comparative data or the context eg, geological, regional, cultural in which the object one wishes to date is found. This approach helps to order events chronologically but it does not provide the absolute age of an object expressed in years. Relative dating includes different techniques, but the most commonly used are soil stratigraphy analysis and typology. On the other hand, absolute dating includes all methods that provide figures about the real estimated age of archaeological objects or occupations. These methods usually analyze physicochemical transformation phenomena whose rate are known or can be estimated relatively well.

Setting Artefacts Free is a Leverhulme Trust-funded interdisciplinary research project that aims to take a holistic approach to investigating the chronology and currency of brooches throughout the Iron Age in Britain. It combines traditional art historical and archaeological analyses with the latest radiocarbon sampling techniques from human and animal burials associated with brooches, Bayesian statistical analysis, and macro- and microscopic use-wear analysis to transform our understanding of the manufacture, use and deposition of brooches.
The systematic large-scale application across Britain of radiocarbon dating and statistical modelling to an artefact type is a key step to demonstrating the tenuousness of our artefact typo-chronologies. The continental connections in this artefact type will serve to either highlight flaws in brooch chronologies across the Channel or bring the British material more accurately in line. Finally, the results will help to reconceptualise community connectivity within Britain and address questions of both chronology and connectivity between Britain and the near Continent.
Iron Age brooches are small copper alloy or iron objects, usually less than mm long and often closer to 50mm; they average around 8g in weight.

Established in , the Carter Company was primarily concerned with the manufacture of tiling and architectural products. It was Jesse Carter’s son Owen who developed the art pottery. By the end of the First World War this was making a wide range of decorative wares under design head James Radley Young and had established important links with the Omega Workshops. Two years after Owen Carter died, his brother Charles formed the partnership with the designer and silversmith Harold Stabler and the Stoke-on-Trent potter John Adams in that ushered in Poole’s heyday.
It was during the Carter, Stabler and Adams period that some of the most memorable Poole wares were produced. Much of the traditional range was based on the work of the chief designer in the s, Truda Carter. These red earthenwares, covered in a white slip and then dipped in a semi-matt clear glaze before decoration in a variety of floral and geometric patterns, drew high acclaim at the time and were retailed through leading stores, including Liberty’s and Heals in London.
The Second World War caused a complete rethink at many of Britain’s potteries. Wartime restrictions had left staff numbers reduced, buildings and machinery were in a poor state of repair and there was little appetite for repeating pre-War designs. At the Poole Pottery this meant investment in a new kiln and an influx of new talent to complement some of the old guard.

While it is not possible to include a complete list, particularly those of extremely rare specimens, those compiled have particular reference to the marks of English china which is greatly in demand by collectors. These will suffice to enable the reader to identify pieces whenever encountered. The signatures or mark which the master craftsmen in earth or clay signed their products, just as a painter signs his work, were often specially designed devices of various kinds, often a combination of initials and dates.
Beginning more than a half century ago in the old La Farge House in lower Broadway where John La Farge was born the house of Gilman Collamore and Company has done much to develop an appreciation of fine china in America.
