The Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) has
recently taken the decision to move publication of interim
excavation/fieldwork reports from period journals (such as Gallia)
to a single new journal, Gallia Informations, which

As before, coverage is by regions
with some 3-5 appearing in each part-volume (from 1989, two
parts per year, cost: 200F per part) so that complete coverage
of France will take several years. The period journals now

of underwater work covering numerous wrecks of all periods.
Inevitably Roman items are dominated by amphorae, most of which
come from Mediterranean sites. A rapid survey indicated the
following types: Dressel 1A/B, 2-4, 6, 20, 28, Camulodunum 186C,
Chrétienne D, Gauloise 4, S, Late Roman, Massiliot, African,
and Dolia. The evidence for contents in cylindrical amphorae
from the Cap Dramont E Wreck (pp40-1) may also be noted.
