The purpose of this mortarium bibliography is to collate the disparate literature on mortaria in order to make it more accessible to pottery specialists and other interested individuals. Undertaken principally between 1995 and 1998, with some updating in 2001 and 2004, the resulting bibliography is essentially, but not totally, comprehensive for the last thirty years. Earlier reports and monographs of particular importance were included, but much interesting earlier material had to be omitted. In addition to the bibliographic reference, set information was recorded on pro forma for each reference with illustrated profiles of mortaria.

For additional explanation of the purpose and the resulting database, see Chapter 1. Introduction, of Hartley, KF and Tomber, R inpress A Mortarium Bibliography for Roman Britain, Journal of Roman Pottery Studies 13.
