Abstract:
Papers from a symposium held in Canterbury in 1977 sponsored jointly by the CBA and the Nautical Archaeology Trust and designed to provide closer understanding between land-based and nautical archaeologists. Four papers report recent discoveries of Roman period boats in the Rhine provinces: Detlev Ellmers brings together the pictorial evidence for various kinds of boat (pp 1-14); M D de Weerd describes the Zwammerdam/Nigrum Pullum barges from Lower Germany (15-21) and Guy de Boe the Pommeroeul (Belgium) examples (22-30); while Béat Arnold (31-5) treats the two boats from Bevaix and Yverdon in Switzerland. There follows a paper on Roman harbours (known or potential) in Britain south of Hadrian's Wall (Henry Cleere, 36-40), and the remainder of the volume is on the archaeological evidence for trade. Mark Hassall (41-8) has collected the epigraphic evidence from Britain and the Rhine provinces, with particular attention to traders attested at Colijnsplaat and Domburg. The problem of Gaulish wine in Roman Britain is discussed by D P S Peacock (49-51) with assessments of transport costs and a map of Dressel 30 amphorae. Pottery evidence for Britain-Rhine trade up to AD 250 is Kevin Greene's subject (52-8), and Michael Fulford (59-69) illuminates the late Roman evidence by analogy with the medieval period. The trade in glass is examined by Jennifer Price (70-78) who selects some forms which occur in both Britain and the Rhineland and suggests some mechanisms of distribution. John Peter Wild (79-81) considers some aspects of the textile trade and sums up the problems revealed by the symposium.
