Here, for the first time, all the information vital to understanding Roman pottery evidence has been brought together in a thorough and accessible review.
A wealth of information can be gleaned from the humble pot sherd. It can be used to date sites, assess economic activity and help in an understanding of patterns of manufacture and trade, especially within the Roman Empire. Surprisingly, despite this and its abundance on archaeological sites, it has only recently become the subject of rigorous and scientific investigation.
