Full description for The National Roman Fabric Reference Collection
The National Roman Fabric Collection (NRFRC), located in the British Museum, aims to provide an infrastructure for future research into Romano-British pottery, providing a standard for the identification and description of Roman pottery types. This handbook presents standardised fabric descriptions for both imported and Romano-British wares, accompanied by black and white illustrations of hand specimens; a colour catalogue completes the volume. The handbook also provides a barometer on Roman pottery studies, with the current state of research reflected by the bibliographic data, drawing attention to areas which are most poorly understood.
