Editor's note: What follows is essentially an introduction to this new section of the Bibliography on scientific analysis, being a résumé of recent papers in Archaeometry and the Journal of Archaeological Science which might have some relevance to students of Roman pottery. In next year's Bibliography and thereafter we hope to present more detailed entries for the most recent publications. Insofar as these entries are concerned, we refer readers to the abstracts which are published at the beginning of each volume of Archaeometry, and at the beginning of each paper in J Archaeol Sci.
