A NOTE ON THE PREHISTORIC POTTERY FROM CHYSAUSTER, CORNWALL.

Author(s): D F Williams

Six small very friable sherds of prehistoric pottery from Chysauster were thin sectioned and studied under the petrological microscope. This showed that five were made from a gabbroic clay, most likely from the Lizard Head in Cornwall. The sixth sample contained inclusions of granitic origin and was probably made locally, Chysauster lying on granite formations.
