Colonoware is a hand-built, unglazed, low-fired, locally-made coarse earthenware found on many domestic archaeological sites in Virginia, South Carolina, the Caribbean and to a lesser extent in North Carolina and Georgia. As an almost ubiquitous late 17th to late 19th century ware, colonoware has been used by historians and archaeologists to explore a variety of topics including consumerism and local market participation, household-level craft production, dining styles and diet preferences, retention of folk traditions, and ritual or medicinal practices.
