Rehydroxylation [RHX] dating is a developing method for dating fired-clay ceramics. This reaction reincorporates hydroxyl OH groups into the ceramic material, and is described as rehydroxylation RHX. This weight increase provides an accurate measure of the extent of rehydroxylation. The dating clock is provided by the experimental finding that the RHX reaction follows a precise kinetic law: the weight gain increases as the fourth root of the time which has elapsed since firing. The concept of RHX dating was first stated in by Wilson and collaborators  who noted that "results
Utah Pottery Project Archaeology Blog: October
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.

Davenport Pottery was an English earthenware and porcelain manufacturer based in Longport , Staffordshire. In , he acquired his own pottery at Longport and began producing cream-coloured blue and white transfer-printed earthenware. In he began making glass, and by he was making porcelain and stone china as well. John retired in and his sons, William and Henry, carried on the firm. Henry died in and the firm became William Davenport and Company.
