Gallo-Belgic Pottery in Britain

The Gallo-Belgic pottery project was undertaken  between 2003 and 2006. The project was funded by a Leverhulme Research grant administered through the Institute of Archaeology, Oxford University under the auspices of Barry Cunliffe.


One of the principal aims of the project was to compile a corpus of Gallo-Belgic pottery (terra nigra and terra rubra) found in Britain. An essential part of this work was  to create a digital record of all known potter name stamps and marks. The data presented in the  web site represents the first stage of dissemination. A monograph outlining the background to the industry, its forms and fabrics, chronology distribution and an interpretation of the results is currently in preparation.
