The Mongol conquest was one of the key moments in the medieval history of the Northern Black Sea Region. Some new Oriental (Solkhat/Krym) and West-European cities (Caffa) appear in the South-Eastern Crimea, next to the existing old Byzantine centers here (Sugdeia/Sudak). Mass production of glazed pottery started in Solkhat, Sudak and Caffa in the third quarter of 13th century, to become a fully developed industry in the second quarter of 14th century. The author attempts to establish whether emergence and development of the glazed pottery production can be indicative of the urban development level.

Keywords: South-East part of Crimea, the Mongol conquest, glazed pottery, ceramic manufacture, Solkhat, Sugdea, Caffa, the status of the medieval city.
