`people behind the pots' are never far away from these
thirteen papers which cover many aspects of the use
and manufacture of prehistoric pottery. The papers,
which are all in English, form the proceedings of a
conference jointly organised by the Prehistoric Ceramics
Research Group and the Ceramics Petrology Group, held
in Bradford in 2002. Subjects include: the introduction
of pottery in the Somerset Levels during the early Neolithic;
the use of ceramics in the Upper Palaeolithic; the potential
role of ceramics for recognising evidence for the exploitation
of fish; the use of pottery in Dutch Hunebedden; the
technological evidence for continuity and change in
the late Neolithic in southern France; Proto-Common
Ware from Pompeii; Iron Age pottery from Little Paxton
near Bedford; the provenance of prehistoric pottery
in the East Midlands; new pots or new people? La Tène
pottery from Celtic Germany; late prehistoric material
from Iberia; organic residues in storage vessels from
the Toumba Thessalonikis; new dates for Scottish Bronze
Age cinerary urns. 226p, b/w figs, tbs (Archaeopress
