These two volumes form the final publication of a major excavation on the side of the famous Circular (or Naval) Harbour of Carthage. Volume II,1 publishes the main findings, including the remains of the dry docks for the Carthaginian navy and the probable remains of an imperial clothworks. Volume II,2 reports on the pottery from the well stratified urban sequence which spans the late Punic to the late Byzantine periods. As a whole, this collection is as comprehensive a publication of an urban excavation as has ever been attempted.

H. R. Hurst, University Lecturer, Museum of Classical Archaeology, University of Cambridge.Review:
`The details of the excavation of the robber trenches and of the ramps and sleepers of the shipsheds fully support his interpretations. His analysis of the destruction of the shipsheds and the later robbings is particularly acute. This is a major work, which makes one even more impatient for the publication of the excavations on the Ilot. This will fill in the picture which the present volume inevitably leaves incomplete.' David Blackman, The International Journal of Nautical Archaeology (1995) 24.4
`The blurb tells us that "This is as comprehensive a publication of an urban excavation as has ever been published", and this is manifestly so in a volume of 348 pages, much in fine print ... readers have all they could possibly want in one volume ... AHB is probably most widely known for the ceramics report by Michael Fulford and David Peacock, whose volume on the harbourside assemblage forms a self-contained companion to the excavation report ... one of the major achievements of the British Mission, and will be increasingly significant as more comparanda are collected from Kiln sites and production areas in Tunisia.' David Gibbins, University of Liverpool, Antiquity, Volume 71, Number 32721, March 1997
