Between 1981 and 1984 archaeological excavations were held in Mata da Machada site (Barreiro, Portugal), where the remains of a late medieval pottery production centre were discovered as part of a huge pre-industrial complex. In the left bank of Tagus River, very close to Lisbon, industrial ware (mainly sugar moulds) and household pottery was produced, not only for the Portuguese capital consumption, but also to provide overseas markets. In this text we present a typology of the glazed ceramics produced in Mata da Machada.
