The glazed ceramics manufacturing in Crimea in the last third of the 13th and 14th centuries is one of the handicraft industries to reflect most clearly the complex ethno-political and demographic processes of those times. Even the coming of this technology to the Crimea was largely due to the different new immigrants who traditionally used it. Therefore, the Crimean glazed pottery had Anatolian, Iranian-Caucasian, Central Asian, Byzantine-Balkan, and East Mediterranean features, which appeared variably in the local ceramic wares at the beginning of activity of the workshops. So, the goal of the study is to analyze the complexes of innovations that were introduced and to specify their possible origin and the ways of ingression. Particular attention is paid to options that could be directly related to potters’ migrations. The results of physico-chemical studies of ceramics are employed in addition to ethnoarchaeological, formal-typological, and comparative methods of analysis. This approach allows us to confidently distinguish between local products and imports, sometimes very similar visually.
