A useful summary of the types of colour-coated beakers found in Normandy dating from the latter half of the 1st century to the end of the 2nd (or perhaps somewhat later, to judge by the inclusion of Trier-type 'Moselkeramik'). Chemical analyses by the authors and others (see also entry no. 670) have demonstrated that the colour-coated wares made at centres such as Lezoux, the Argonne, Jaulges/Villiers-Vineux and Trier are clealy chemically distinguishable. Examples of vessels from all of these sources have been identified in Normandy, as well as vessels probably from a local source. These latter are roughcast, cornice-rimmed beakers with a greyish fabric; all such vessels with a reddish fabric are (chemically) identified as from the Argonne.

The site at Jaulges/Villiers-Vineux is now recognised as among the more important pottery productions centres of the late Roman period in Gaul. It was, however, only re-discovered in 1965, and only extremely limited areas of what is a very large site have been excavated. This is because the writers of this paper, who were responsible for its re-discovery and subsequent recognition, have concentrated firstly on the protection of the site, secondly on surface collection and survey of the site, and only on excavation in order to clarify specific research objectives. The protection of the site has recently become more secure with the purchase by the French government of substantial amounts of the land, in order to create an "archaeological reserve". This paper is a summary of the work undertaken by the writers from 1965 to the present, apparently presented as a way of clarifying their views on all aspects of the site, immediately before producing a major detailed report on their findings. The pottery presented here is very limited: 10 sherds of mould-decorated samian; 6 sherds of metallic 'excised' colour-coated ware; and 6 sherds of 'painted' ware. The discussion, however, is fundamental, especially on the nature of a pottery production centre and its evolution.
