Baltic and North Atlantic Pottery Research Group 

3rd Meeting in Stralsund, 15-16 October 2020

at Stralsund Cityhall

The Baltic and North Atlantic Pottery Research Group (BNPG) is a group of archaeologists, historians, art historians and such alike with a passion for medieval and post-medieval pottery produced and traded within Northern Europe. It arose in 2016 with the aim of bringing together specialists from different regions to meet and exchange knowledge.

Following the very successful first two meetings in Stockholm 2016 and in Tallinn 2018, we decided to meet again in two years in Germany. In Tallinn altogether 43 persons from 11 different countries met with different papers and sharing information and had a look on pottery.

The third BNPG-meeting was planned to take place in April 2020, but due to the situation with Covid-19 the meeting was cancelled. Our countries are now opening up and we all hope that we can meet during the autumn instead.

The meeting will now take place in Stralsund on 15–16 October 2020. As last time, we decided that we will not need a more specific topic to address, so all contributions from people dealing with pottery from the Nordic region that would fit into medieval and later periods are welcomed.

The venue of our meeting is kindly provided by the Stralsund Museum and the meeting will take place at the Town Hall in the centre of Stralsund. Stralsund got the city status in 1234 and was one of the prosperous members of the Hanseatic League. Today the old town with its rich heritage is honored as a Unesco World Heritage.

 We encourage everybody interested in the topic to send their abstract of no more than 250 words by 01.07.2020 to and for registration of participation by 01.08.2020 to the same address. The conference fee will be 45 EUR covering the coffee breaks and trivialities. It will not include lunch breaks or conference dinner 15.10.2020. Those of you that already had delivered abstracts will it not be necessary to do that again, but everybody must register once again and tell us if you want to give a paper.

 If you have any additional questions, please contact any of the following persons:
