The Native Pottery of Roman Dacia

Mircea Negru


This book analyses the ‘local pottery’ tradition of Roman Dacia. (In the summer of 106 AD a part of Dacia – today Romania - became a Roman province.) Taking wheel- and hand-made products, the author investigates only that pottery which clearly derives from the classic Dacian Late Iron Age, and under ‘local pottery’ includes the terms ‘local tradition’, ‘native’, and ‘indigenous pottery’. The work contains a repertory of wholly native pottery found in Roman Dacia, as well as a list of sites.
