A detailed and well illustrated (13 figures of pot drawings) report on the pottery from a predominantly 2nd-3rd C. cemetery. Particularly important for the colour-coated wares present, including 'hairpin' beakers and various types of folded beakers.

The third volume in a series on pottery from Alesia, following earlier volumes on metallic fine wares (1972) and on flagons! jugs (1975). Like the earlier volumes, this is mainly a type series with descriptions of the vessels and their fabrics, with some fairly vague, sometimes dubious dating (few vessels are from well-dated deposits), and wholly lacking in quantitative analysis. There is also no discussion of the sources of the vessels, although it is obvious that some at least are not local products (no substantial pottery production has yet been identified near Alésia).

blg/tng/trb/stv (stamps only for all types)
A detailed study of stamps on Gallo-Belgic wares found in Normandy The majority are found to have been made either at the workshops of the Vesle Valley (see entry no. 604) or at Vertault, near Châtillon-sur-Seine (Côte-d'Or), although these centres appear to have had some connections with each other. The paper is supplemented by a number of tables detailing aspects of the stamps and their distribution, and there is considerable discussion of the comparative chronology and distribution of the wares from the respective production centres, as well as on the nature of trade in pottery during the period in question.

A report on the finds from the major site of Malain-Mediolanum, in Bourgogne, supplemented by a 'Visitor's guide' to the site. There are no conclusions drawn on the site or the finds, and the latter are language of mythological motifs in mould-decorated samian, with specific reference to the theme of Ulysses and Polyphemus expressed by the Satto-Saturninus groups of potters. In essence this is a study of how samian ware was used as a means of telling a story, and how the story is compressed into small, symbolic figures on bowls. The work has implications for the study of mould-decorated samian from many sources.

The most recent in Mme Laubenheimer's production line of amphora books covers the earliest excavated material she has yet tackled: most of the vessels and stamps published here were unearthed sometime between 1867 and 1907, mostly by Bulliot and Déchelette, on the oppidum at Mont Beuvray, known in Gallic as Bibracte. In a sense this research was an exercise in 19th and 20th century archaeology, since the material was spread between several museums, although mainly at the Musée Rolin at Autun and at the Musée des Antiquités Nationales at St Germain-en-Laye. Calculating the numbers of amphorae found by Bulliot is in itself a remarkably difficult task, since his quantification consisted of remarking on a "pile of amphorae" or a "great heap" (he was, after all, one of archaeology's pioneers), but it is interesting that a single form, the Dressel 1, totally dominates, accounting for 94% of the material. This suggests "a single source of wine supplies, from merchants enjoying a monopoly" (p147). The main concentration of the volume is on the stamps, of which a total of 193 are catalogued and very well illustrated, where possible with a photograph, a drawing, a rim profile and a reproduction of the original Bulliot illustration. Of the 193, there are 129 different stamps.
