Olive-oil amphorae imports in Roman Britain: 20 years later

Cèsar Carreras Monfort


Pedro Pablo A. Funari carried out research in amphora studies in Roman Britain in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He was interested in the epigraphy (painted inscriptions and stamps) on the most common amphora in the Isles, which was the Baetican Dressel 20. His scholarship supposed an important change in the way amphorae were studied in the United Kingdom and influenced later scholars and research. The present paper attempts to overview his contribution in amphora research in Roman Britain, and how those studies have evolved in the last 20 years. Of course, there are new data available, but also alternative approaches in terms of methodology and interpretation.
