ATLAS OF CERAMIC PRODUCTION SITES AND SHIPWRECKS
 
The collection of all published (and partly unpublished) data on ceramic production sites in central-southern Tirrenic Italy (Tuscany, Lazio, Campania and Sicily), from the 4th Century B.C. to the 1st Century A.D., has been completed.
 
v Informations are collected in the volume “Atlante dei siti di produzione e delle ceramiche dell’Italia centro meridionale (Toscana, Lazio, Campania e Sicilia)” (Quasar Editor, Rome)

Direct access to the Atlas records
 

The volume is based on a series of factsheets on pottery production sites, including the geographic location of the site, information on structures, drawings of the main pottery types, epigraphic data and bibliographic references. The Atlas also includes tables with information on the shipwrecks which were carrying the ceramics produced in central-southern Italy throughout the Mediterranean markets over a time-span of five centuries, from the 4th Century B.C. to the 1st Century A.D. The aim is to increase the data on pottery production sites with information on the trade routes of their ceramic products in the Western Mediterranean .

  Dealing with such huge quantity of data enables new interpretations concerning pottery production and circulation of ceramics and victuals, as well as the level reached by handicrafts technology in different areas during the classical antiquity.
