Synopsis: The remains of amphorae furnish a unique record of economic activity in the classical world, providing direct evidence of the movement of valued commodities which they were used to transport. Amphora studies have developed rapidly in recent years, and there has been an urgent need for an up-to-date synthesis of our present knowledge - which the present volume met on its publication in hardback in 1986. The book now appears in paperback for the first time. The first half of the book discusses such general themes as the value of amphora studies, the technology of manufacture and food production and the nature of Roman trade. The remainder of the book is a practical guide to the identification of the most widely transported Roman amphorae forms, with photographs and line drawings of the individual classes and a strong emphasis on fabric as well as form to aid more precise identification.
