The `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 BAR S1156, 2003).
