A paper on production of Gallo-Belgic wares in an area to the southeast of Reims, including plans of ten kilns at five different sites (out of a total of-21 or 22 kilns at six sites). There are brief typologies of the product of each of the six sites, as well as drawings of 88 stamps from five of the sites. One of these sites, Sept-Saulx, was thought of by Val Rigby back in 1973 as "an important supplier of TN to the British Market" (quoted on p. 122). It would seem that these should now be known as the Vesle Valley group of workshops. The kilns include several apparently double-ended constructions, similar to at least one very large kiln found at Gueugnon, Saône-et-Loire (Gaillard &: parriat, Rev. Arch. de l'Est XXVI, 1975, fasc. 101- 102, 336-340). See also entry no. 607.

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.
