Congrès de Cognac, 1991, 185-191.
This is a thoughtful examination of the development of the
pottery industries in Gaul - Central Gaul in particular - and on
the social and economic status of the potters. The installation
of the industries in South Gaul, Central Gaul and Lyon in the
early 1st century were all deliberate acts, requiring
substantial capital investments, at places where there was
little or no previous tradition of pottery production. A similar
sort of investment was also needed in Central Gaul in the early
2nd century, when the potters began using a calcareous clay and
the industry was re-organised. Vertet suggests that the initial
investments must have been undertaken by Romans directly, while
the later investments may have come from wealthy Gauls. In
either case, however, the potters themselves were relatively
poor, although not slaves - Vertet quotes Finley, who speaks of
peasants who were "neither slaves nor free men". It is
also worth noting Vertet's complaint (in footnote 2) that this
is a subject which is no longer receiving the attention it
deserves: some thirty years ago the CNRS created three posts to
cover the production centres of South, Central and East Gaul,
respectively; two of the three original occupants are now
retired, and have not been replaced.

The majority of this book is concerned with the finds from two
cellars belonging to houses within the civil settlement attached
to the fort at Langenhain, apparently destroyed by fire c233.
Both produced large deposits of largely homogeneous pottery
although the published sections suggest that neither are truly
sealed deposits. The main interest for readers of the Journal
will be in the large amount of samian, including plain ware,
published with Rheinzabern and Trier well represented and pieces
from Lavoye and Heiligenberg also present. Among material
published from elsewhere in the fort and civil settlement,
samian from La Madeleine, the Satto/Saturninus workshop and
Blickweiler. Of particular interest are the 116 stamped vessels
from cellar 1 which are the work of just 5 Rheinzabern potters.

the book, see Britannia 25, 1994, 342.
