This long-term project undertakes research on the imported material found in Atlantic Britain and Ireland in the period AD 400-800. Pottery and glass was brought from the Mediterranean in the early sixth century, and from France and England in the seventh and eighth centuries. This material is of crucial importance in dating sites in these areas, and also in illuminating long-distance contacts and economic development.
