Análysis and publication of ceramics: the computer data-base in archaeology

Front Cover
The editors put forward ideas for a database for pottery, recording forms (possibly from drawings), fabrics, findspots. These ideas are commented on and extended by others concerned that pottery evidence is not being used as fully as it could be. Examples are chiefly Near Eastern - pottery from Caesarea Maritima and Levantine mortaria - but the ideas are of general application and include thoughts on physical and chemical data as well as wider socio-economic topics.
