As the medieval pottery assemblage was a potentially early and tightly dated group that consisted mainly of cooking pots and storage jars in Scottish White Gritty Ware fabrics (SWGW), the opportunity was taken to analyse the clay fabric by both chemical and petrographic means. The aim was to assess whether this pottery represented local or regional production. Since 1998 a project with a key element of science-based analysis has examined more than 600 Scottish White Gritty Ware sherds from over 40 sites throughout Scotland, including a large number from Edinburgh (Jones et al 2003; Haggarty & Hughes 2012). Since the initial study was published in 2003, further assemblages and sites have been analysed, including material from Norton House Hotel (Jones 2008) and Kirkliston Road, Newbridge (Jones 2011); both these sites are in located within 5km of Gogar Church.
