          The aim of the paper was to charcterize the surface topography of fragments of ceramic vessels found in the region of Starosiedle in Poland and Rosenhof in Germany and dated from 10th century. The work is realized in frame of the collaboration with archeologists from Institute of Archeology and Ethnology of the Polish Academy of Science (PAN). The main idea of work is to characterization of topography of ancient pottery, especially the attention in concentrate of ceramic matrix, admixtures and bonding with matrix. The results of investigation of ancient pottery with using stereoscopy microscope and profilometer and reported.

          For the archeologists results of examination fragments of ancient pottery will permit finding the relations between the ceramic structure and the technique of its manufacturing and, on this basis, to conclude about the development of the technology of ceramic pottery in the relation on the social and cultural background at the times of its manufacture. For the materials science and engineering scientists will permit examinining the effects of the produckt remaining in a given ground for thousand of years. This experience can be supplemented to studes of the materials that were exposed to the action of the extremal envirnment for such a long time.
