Virtually all of these papers are relatively brief
resumes of material which either has been or will be published
in more detail elsewhere. Nevertheless, given that the specific
and general discussions include comments by most of the
best-known amphora researchers in Europe, the volume as a whole
is a remarkably comprehensive summary of the general state of
amphora studies as they stood in 1990.

concurrence "organisée" entre potiers d'ateliers

Soubran and Petit-Niort are twin villages which lie almost
exactly halfway between Bordeaux and Saintes. This is a study of
two recently identified pottery production centres at a distance
of some four kilometres apart, which appear to have produced
similar series of coarse tablewares, but which seem to have
co-operated in the marketing of their products. The two
illustrated ranges of wares are not identical, but at both sites
one of the most important products was a large pinched-mouthed
flagon, and both series also include cornice-rimmed, bag-shaped
beakers. A section on chemical analyses of the fabrics shows
that they are chemically separable, although visually this is
often not the case. It was the results of the analyses which
led, therefore, to the realisation that the marketing of the
respective series was not competitive, since Petit-Niort
products are found at Saintes and elsewhere in Saintonge, while
Soubran products are found mainly at Bordeaux and elsewhere to
