Description

They were years of profound changes in Italian society, as well as in English society, when in 1969 the young Hugo arrived in Italy for a doctoral thesis on medieval ceramics in central-northern Italy, a research that led him to immediately enter into contact with the major scholars of archeology and medieval ceramics of the time, such as David Whitehouse, Michelangelo Cagiano de Azevedo, Tiziano Mannoni, Ezio and Liana Tongiorgi, Ottone d'Assia, John Ward Perkins, Galeazzo Cora, John Mallet, Riccardo Francovich, Sergio Nepoti, Lanfredo Castelletti and many others. Many other fundamental contacts Hugo was able to establish thanks to Tiziano Mannoni, who took him to the International Ceramics Conferences of Albisola from 1970, in a central environment, foundational for Italian medieval archeology and for the recognition of the historiographical value of ceramic finds from archaeological contexts , a venue where Hugo himself promoted the idea of ​​building an international network for medieval archeology and an information tool, which materialized in the “Medieval Archeology Newsletter” (better known as NAM). This network of relationships was the basis that constituted a turning point for a reorganization of the contents and a premise, in perspective, for the institutionalization of the Discipline itself. Thus, the volume represents an 'indirect' reflection on a specific historical period of our archaeological culture, perhaps still partly unexpressed. A season of movements, 'naturally' international, also with institutional structures of reference, but with personal and collective initiative as a central value. The second part of the volume is dedicated to the sector that qualifies and represents decades of research by Hugo Blake, namely 'ceramics'. Thus, for example, the essays cover a chronological span extended to the point of being included in the primary periodization attributed to the sector's national reference journal, "Medieval Archaeology": 'postclassical-preindustrial'.
In this context, with a decisive contribution from Blake's studies, a truly new source was also 'produced', through a radical reset of the studies on the ceramic basins that decorate churches and civil buildings - particularly among the XNUMXth century. X-XV - on the basis of contextualisations of which the monumental wall systems, of which they were part, constitute the main but not only 'association'.
