Aspects of Roman pottery in Canton Ticino (Switzerland)
De Micheli Schulthess, Christiane M. A. (2001) Aspects of Roman pottery in Canton Ticino (Switzerland). PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This work deals with the classification and further study of Roman coarse and thin walled pottery from the Locarno region of Canton Ticino, a district of Switzerland on the southern side of Central Alps, in order to establish a reference typology and chronology which may have wider value in Ticino and the nearer regions of northern Italy. The considered pottery comes from the cemeteries and, to a lesser extent, the settlements of the Locarno region, which contains by far the largest number of burials with datable grave-goods in the Canton. The Roman graves from the region range from the beginning of the 1st century AD to the end of the 4th century AD, with a concentration during the 1st and 2nd centuries AD.
