674  Tuffreau-Libre, M & Jacques, A, 'La céramique gallo-romaine du ler siècle dans le sud de l'Atrébatie', Gallia 43, fasc. 1, 1985, 127-145.
A detailed paper on the 1st century pottery from a number of sites at and in the region surrounding Arras. The range of wares has many similarities with that published in Camulodunum, although there are also obviously local wares, such the North Gaulish necked jars with burnished rings around the neck. The paper includes useful comparative discussion on the types of pottery found contemporaneously in cemeteries, villas and in the town.

Summary of an excavation in a quarter of the Roman town. It includes a picture (fig. 12) of an ithyphallic monkey in what appears to be a dark fabric which is described only as "en terre cuite".

*1244  Tuffreau-Libre, M, 'La céramique gallo-romaine de Baralle', in Hosdez, C and Jacques, A 1989, La nécropole à incinérations deBaralle (Pas-de-Calais), Nord-Ouest Arch6ol 2, 205-223. exc,syn/cem/Claudian-Trajanic/usf sts/mro/mca/buf/osd/wht/rsw/grf/tng/trb/ppr/crb/rst/stv
The 100 or so cremations are catalogued earlier in the report (25-179). Here Tuffreau-Libre discusses (amongst other things) the associations between the fine wares, their date-ranges, sets out a type series, discovers the associations between vessel-types and makes comparisons with other cemetery and occupation-sites (cf JRPS 3, entry no. 674). Tuffreau-Libre describes the changes in the grave-assemblages over time and makes comparisons between Baralle and two earlier cemeteries, Noyelles-Godault and Vimy. She ends by assessing the (high) value of coarse pottery dating-evidence in cemeteries and drawing attention to significant changes in the last quarter of the first century, when numbers of pots in graves decreased and a new repertoire of forms is found.
