Description This article discusses the processing of pottery finds from the Ohrada site, near the Lichnice cas - tle (Chrudim district) associated with the siege of the castle in 1428–1429. The series consists of 437 frag- ments of kitchenware and tableware. Ten ceramic classes were defined within the series. Some of the finds were selected for the identification of technological properties and provenance by means of micropetrog - raphy. The results were verified with the use of the pXRF method. Firing temperatures were determined with selected fragments. Apart from kitchenware and tableware, the study focuses on the finds of stove and building ceramics which are not typical of sites of this type. In addition, a micropetrographic analysis was conducted with selected fragments of floor tiles and tiles.
