Excavations at Francavilla Marittima 1991-2004

Matt-Painted Pottery from the Timpone della Motta Volume 3: The Fringe Style

Marianne Kleibrink


This is the third volume on ceramics in a series of publications on research carried out by Groningen University in the period 1991-2004 on the Timpone della Motta, Francavilla Marittima (Calabria), under the direction of the author. This volume, on the ‘Fringe Style’, contains a fully illustrated catalogue of the material accompanied by a valuable discussion about material from this site, as well as relating it to Matt-painted pottery production at other sites, and discusses the chronological information. It therefore provides a valuable detailed account of an assemblage from pre-Roman Italy, a comparatively neglected period.
