dc.description.abstract The introduction of wheel thrown pottery in Barbados is seen as an exception within the femaledominated pottery tradition of the region. This paper will examine recent documentary evidence of a plantation in Barbados that counters such a gendered division of labour. This study will examine the influence that female potters might have had on the vessels forms created, as well as the factors that led to the inclusion of women in the pot house workforce. The paper will also discuss whether their presence was simply an exception to the rule in the occupational composition of plantation pot houses. en_US
