This page of the Tessellations website will provide an introduction to Periods.
Towards the bottom of this page, you will find 'Related Museum Objects'. These are images and information about those objects in the National Tile Database. More will be added as the site is developed.
Each object is represented by a one thumbnail image but other views including close-ups may be available. If you click on the thumbnail image, a new page will open with a larger image and, where available, more thumbnails showing other views plus additional information about the object. You can look at larger images of any of these thumbnails.
To the left of this text you may find a column with links to related pages and, below that, you may find a timeline that relates to the subject of the page or the date to which it relates.
You may wish to 'collect' images or information as you explore Tessellations by clicking on 'Add to Discovery Folder'. At the end of your visit you can view what you have collected by clicking on 'Your Discovery Folder' and may choose to print the images and information that you have collected. Alternatively, you can send yourself or someone else an e-mail containing the trail of pages and images that you have visited by clicking on 'Your Discovery Trail'.
