Project description

The dissertation focuses on the issues, where and for whom African Red Slip Ware was made. It is based on the representative African tableware collection of the Dutch archaeologist Salomonson. By applying fabric analysis, the samples with archaeologically secured provenances are used to determine the origin of African tableware from selected Mediterranean consumption sites and thus allowing for economic reconstructions.
