The SGRP 2017 conference will be held at Tullie House in Carlisle from Friday 14th July to Sunday 16th July.

There will also be a visit to the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage site.

The Committee would like to invite 20 minute papers on recent or current pottery research. While we hope for a particular emphasis on material from the North of Britain, all contributions will be considered. Anyone wishing to give a paper is asked to provide a title and submit a short abstract of c 100-200 words to the Secretary by 31st January 2017.

This year the SGRP conference is being held at Peterborough, based at the Park Inn Hotel. There is a choice of week-end residential or day attendance only.

We are looking for offers of papers up to 20 minutes in length but shorter contributions are also welcome to highlight new finds or interesting facts. Please get in touch with SGRP secretary, Jane Timby, if you would like to contribute.
