As expected, given the presence of the Stone House complex, a wide array of colonial (English, German and Italian) wheel-thrown wares are known from site PG64. The selections below represent only pottery from well-documented areas of the excavation (i.e. stratified and from blocks associated with diary entries). The introductory video below gives a summary of some of these wares, along with their defining characteristics. Additional information can be found in the document links and images associated with particular wares in the list below. The latter are arranged both by type (ceramic technology used) and chronologically.
