It later became part of the “rustic” wing of the art pottery movement. This was their “bread and butter” trade, although one of their decorative jugs secured a medal at the Great Exhibition in In Thomas’s son, Charles Hubert Brannam, left school at age 12 to start work at the pottery. Charles won a prize for art at school and also won the Queen’s Prize for Drawing in In he persuaded his father to allow him to produce art ware. His father agreed on the proviso that Charles paid for the materials he used. Charles eventually took over the Litchdon Street pottery and further developed the art pottery department, utilising the ” sgraffito ” technique of scratching into a covering of ” slip ” to show the clay beneath.

Thomas Brannam started on his own, after having worked for some years as a potter, in Barnstaple, Devon, in The company originally made utility wares such as floor tiles and sewage pipes. The name most usually associated with Brannam is that of Charles Hubert Brannam, Thomas’s son, born Charles started work at the pottery at the age of twelve.
He was artistically inclined, and after many years trying, managed to persuade his father, in , to let him experiment with the production of art pottery at their Litchdon Street works. In the following decade a London outlet was found for the wares, which were known as Royal Barum Ware, and the company soon established an enviable reputation. It is true to say that they were patronised by the crowned heads of Europe, and that included Queen Victoria.
Fine wares continued to be produced well into the twentieth century, but after C H Brannam’s death in the emphasis moved away from art pottery back towards plainer domestic wares. Brannam pottery is widely collected and due to the company’s long life – they are still producing pottery today – something can be found to suit every collector’s pocket. Many marks have been used over the years, mostly using combinations of ‘C H Brannam’, ‘Castle’, ‘Barum’ and ‘Barnstaple’.

A team at the University of Bristol has developed a new method of dating pottery which is allowing archaeologists to date prehistoric finds from across the world with remarkable accuracy. The exciting new method, reported in detail today in the journal Nature , is now being used to date pottery from a range of key sites up to 8, years old in Britain, Europe and Africa. Archaeological pottery has been used to date archaeological sites for more than a century, and from the Roman period onwards can offer quite precise dating.
But further back in time, for example at the prehistoric sites of the earliest Neolithic farmers, accurate dating becomes more difficult because the kinds of pottery are often less distinctive and there are no coins or historical records to give context. This is where radiocarbon dating, also known as 14C-dating, comes to the rescue. Until now, archaeologists had to radiocarbon date bones or other organic materials buried with the pots to understand their age.
But the best and most accurate way to date pots would be to date them directly, which the University of Bristol team has now introduced by dating the fatty acids left behind from food preparation. He said: “Being able to directly date archaeological pots is one of the “Holy Grails” of archaeology. This new method is based on an idea I had going back more than 20 years and it is now allowing the community to better understand key archaeological sites across the world.
There’s a particular beauty in the way these new technologies came together to make this important work possible and now archaeological questions that are currently very difficult to resolve could be answered. The trick was isolating individual fat compounds from food residues, perhaps left by cooking meat or milk, protected within the pores of prehistoric cooking pots.
The team brought together the latest high resolution nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and mass spectrometry technologies to design a new way of isolating the fatty acids and checking they were pure enough for accurate dating. The team then had to show that the new approach gave dates as accurate as those given by materials commonly dated in archaeology, such as bones, seeds and wood.
To do this the team looked at fat extracts from ancient pottery at a range of key sites in Britain, Europe and Africa with already precise dating which were up to 8, years old.
