Abstract

This paper discusses the ceramic evidence from survey and excavations in the middle Tiber valley during the 4th to 7th centuries AD and its significance for our understanding of settlement, production and distribution. The results derive from the British School at Rome’s Tiber valley project. This integrates the evidence from the first full and systematic study of the South Etruria survey material, with the results of the Farfa survey and published evidence from other surveys and excavations. The results shed light on the changing economic relationships between Rome and its hinterland, and provide new evidence for the extent of Late Antique settlement.
