An extensive archaeological excavation occurred between 1991 and 1998 in Rua das Pedras Negras, Lisbon, but data remains mainly unpublished. The authors publish and describe the assemblage of medieval imported pottery dating from late 13th to 14th centuries, turning back to the theme already previously treated (Silva et al., forthcoming). Productions include fabrics originated in Valencia, Seville and Granada, Saintonge (≪polychrome≫, ≪highly decorated≫, plain and ≪mottled≫), North French (≪highly decorated≫), Flemish (from Brugesand perhaps Antwerp), English (London) and, eventually, the Low Countries. The overall assemblage demonstrates that ceramic productions exported through Bordeaux and La Rochelle harbours are predominant over the remaining, and quantity and diversity are symptomatic of high acquisition capacity verified by Lisboners between the reigns of Afonso III and Pedro I, as well as of the chief role played by Lisbon in the network of commercial maritime relations then established between Portugal and the north Atlantic European facade.
