9780904887136: Greek Transport Amphorae: A Petrological and Archaeological Study

For five and a half centuries amphorae were used by the ancient Greeks to transport olive oil, wine and other liquid and semi-liquid products, and their analysis provides the main source of information on the organic staples of the classical economy. Traditionally chronological and regional types have been established by stylistic analysis and the incomplete evidence of administrative stamps. The author surveys this methodology and compares it with the results of his own extensive work on the ceramic petrology of Greek amphorae. This approach sheds new light by allowing analysis of undiagnostic sherds. This study places amphorae in the braoder context of Greek agricultural production, bulk transportation and changing trade patterns. It also explores amphora production within a broader ceramic complex by a detailed study of Corinthian amphora workshops. But perhaps the most lasting contribution of this book is the considered suggestions it makes for the scientific study of coarsewares, the importance of which have previously been underestimated.
