The factory and kiln deposit at Pantanello

Joseph Coleman Carter and Norma Ortíz Galindo
Publication Year:
690 pages, two volume set
BAR number:


This book presents the final report on the excavation and reconstruction of the buildings and kilns at Pantanello. It is accompanied by an extensive analysis and catalog of the finds from the site, including fine grey ware and banded ware, cooking ware, coarse wares, and amphorae of the last two centuries of the Roman Republic and first century of the Imperial period in southern Italy. It is the fullest study yet published of a number of these classes, and also provides evidence for a metalworking industry near the site. Overall, the book contributes to a better understanding of the archaeology of pottery and metallurgical production in Italy, and is a valuable resource on the material culture of Greek southern Italy during the Roman period.

This is part of a two-part set: ISBN 9781407360997 (Part i); ISBN 9781407361000 (Part ii); ISBN 9781407360898 (Set of both parts).
