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.

Part of a summary of recent work which, unlike British equivalents, sometimes includes lists and illustrations of pottery finds. This particular issue appears to be of interest for its samian, amphoras and mortaria.

A similar format to item 1433 above but, in this case, with a fuller finds listing making these a useful means of getting a rapid view of Roman ceramics in Upper Germany. Here, the pottery imitations of saucepans with rams-head handles (page 667) are of particular interest.
