Greek Geometric Pottery by J. N. ColdstreamGeometric' is the term describing the linear decoration of fine pottery made by the Greeks from c. 900 to 700 BC, a period which saw the dawn of Hellenic civilisation. This age, one of the most creative in Greek history, witnessed the compostion of the Homeric poems, the invention of the Greekalphabet, and the establishment of the great pan-hellenic sanctuaries of Olympia and Delphi. Geometric pottery, a leading art of its day, is no less creative in spirit. It is of special importance for the historians of early Greece, being plentiful enough to establish a workable chronology for aperiod when there are no contemporary written documents. The main object of this book is a comprehensive study of ten local styles, and their relations with one another. This is followed by an attempt to fix their absolute chronology, in the light of the evidence. Finally a historical sketch shows how the results of the pottery analysis can be combinedwith other archaeological evidence and with later written sources, in order to throw more light on the political, social and economic development of the early Greek city-states.

Handbook of Mediterranean Roman Pottery by John W. HayesIn the past, Roman pottery has been judged as inferior to Greek pottery. Recent excavations, however, have led to an increase in knowledge and appreciation of Roman wares. These wares now constitute an important body of evidence for the understanding of art, literacy and trade in the ancient world. John W. Hayes, the acknowledged authority in this field, explains the particular features that mark Roman-period wares, concisely describing how the vessels were manufactured, decorated, traded and used. Placing the pottery in historical context, he describes its roots in the Hellenistic Greek tradition, its evolution as a distinct art form and its influence on Byzantine and Islamic trends.

Roman Pottery by Kevin GreeneThe sheer abundance of pottery found on Roman sites throughout Europe and Asia makes it essential to our understanding of the ancient societies that created it. This book explains how traditional methods of classification have been supplemented by modern scientific and computer-based analysis, thereby encouraging specialists to ask an ever-widening range of questions. Whether the answers include the date of an excavated deposit, the technology of manufacture, or the wealth and trading activity of the settlement, the conclusions that can now be drawn from Roman pottery are proving invaluable in our efforts to interpret the past.
