Portuguese faience in the British Isles

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


During the 17th century the trade between Portugal and the United Kingdom was frequent. The major products were wine, olive oil, salt and fruit however other products were sent on board ships, including Portuguese faience. Based on archaeological evidence from English and Irish towns, the author interprets the local importance of these imports in commercial, economic, social and cultural terms, but also their impact on the economic and productive scene in Portugal in the same period.
