Pottery on board in the end of 18th century.

Author(s): Joanna A. Dabal

Year: 2013


In this article the author presents two different complexes from similar time. One of them constitutes pottery finds from English vessel W-32 – the General Carleton of Whitby which sunk in 1785. The second complex of finds is that excavated from Dutch vessel which sank between 1791-1793. Probably the name of the vessel was De Jonge Seerp.

Both of the pottery complexes remind different habits on English and Dutch vessels and tell the story about everyday life of the crew. Similar dates of both boats sinking give the possibility to compare them as examples of European vessels sailing through the Baltic sea at the end of 18th Century.

The author would like to emphasis also the role of row material from wrecks for city archaeology researches. Underwater surveys are also included for studies of Baltic harbors and the trade in them. Gdansk and its area is one of them.
