This blog is about my trip to Virginia and North Carolina over 6 weeks in September and October 2010 and what happened afterwards. I travelled on a Winston Churchill Memorial Trust travel Fellowship and researched the export of North Devon Pottery and made links with the Community of Manteo, North Carolina, Bideford's sister City.Since this trip I have found my own sherds of North Devon Pottery and so have started my own collection. Some of these have been shared with curators back in America.

The 17th century Storage jar
Here is the photo I took of the 17th century North Devon storage jar at St Nicholas Priory in Exeter and referred to in my previous post. The similarity is striking!
I would say this is the same vessel as the big sherd I found.
