Description The Rokštejn Castle pottery assemblages span from the 13th to the 15th century, encompassing the existence of the Castle from its origins until the destruction in 1467. Based on the data from the systematic archaeological excavation of the Castle, stratified pottery assemblages are precisely dated. The aim of this presentation is to discuss the development of pottery in castle environment as a social aspect of local production and/or trade with pottery. The study of the provenience of the pottery (XRF and macroscopic analyses) is an ongoing project focused mainly on the area of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands, where the castle and its hinterland are situated.
