Mediaeval Cyprus as manifested in the representations of glazed pottery

The glazed mediaeval pottery of Cyprus is unique to the study of Byzantine pottery. They share common roots and many similarities. However, the mediaeval pottery of the island exhibits local characteristics, one of the impacts of the Crusades on the history of Cyprus. Several representations on mediaeval glazed pottery supply concrete information as regards the attire, customs and habits of the age and succeed, in their naive and charming way, in transporting us to the fascinating world of the Cypriot Middle-Ages.
