Digital Type Collections
The Florida Museum of Natural History's on-line type collections of historic period archaeological ceramics (1492-1850) is a fully searchable digital resource.
With the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, we are able to offer it on-line as a service to archaeologists, museum curators, material culture specialists, and anyone interested in historic period ceramics.
The digital collection includes thousands of images of individual sherds, representing hundreds of different ceramic types. The site also includes an extensive searchable database of information about these specimens.
The following links can guide you to the many kinds of searches, research questions, additional information and resources you will find in the site.
We suggest that first time users begin with the explanation of how to use the Digital Type Collection.
