This follows the tradition of useful late Roman and Merovingian cemetery publications from the Lower Rhineland, best exemplified by the series of volumes on the cemeteries at Krefeld-Gellep by Dr Renate Pining. The report on the excavations of the southwest Roman cemetery at Tongres is divided into two volumes. The first contains descriptions of the 289 graves and their contents, and a general study of the grave contents -  : principally later Roman pottery and glass - and the second volume is devoted to plans of selected graves showing the locations of the finds, and illustrations of the finds, grave by grave. The pottery contains an interesting range of fine and coarse wares, including late samian (Argonne-type), late Trier fine wares and Eifelkeramik. Available through Oxbow Books.Journal of Roman Pottery Studies  Vol 3 1990 page 114-115

This is the first of three volumes so far published (a fourth is shortly forthcoming) on excavations at Braives. All three have substantial sections on pottery, of which the most important material is the samian, the colour-coated wares, the mica-gilt wares (not so much in this first volume) and the mortaria. A number of specific types illustrated in these volumes were undoubtedly exported to Britain, and some may not yet have been recognised in Britain as imports.

This second volume on Braives concentrates on the area of pottery production, where a total of twelve kilns were excavated. There is a lengthy section on the kilns themselves, and also detailed studies of their products, including analyses by virtually every method which was available in 1983. There is also quite a lot of other pottery illustrated, including samian, colour-coated wares, amphorae and mortaria.

This third volume on Braives concentrates on the material from a peripheral area of the vicus. While nearly all the types presented in the two previous volumes re-appear here, there is a particular concentration on the mica-gilt wares, which are dominated by everted-rimmed jars/beakers with bosses, but also include a folded beaker, a mortarium-like bowl with broad, curved flange and very shallow spout, a three-legged bowl, and other bowl forms. Examples of most of these forms have been found with terra-nigra-like stamps, of which 15 are illustrated. Some eight of the mica-gilt forms are illustrated with black-and-white photographs, including the front cover of the volume.

This first volume on Liberchies is intended to be the first of a series mirroring that on Braives. Published in the same style, by the same team, the pottery is very similar, although the main difference
