FACEM: Provenance Studies on Pottery in the Central Mediterranean

Provenance Studies on Pottery

in the Southern Central Mediterranean from the 6th to the 2nd c. B.C.

Facem (= Fabrics of the Central Mediterranean) is a database for specialists of Greek, Punic and Roman pottery, first released on 6th of June 2011. Its aim is to give an overview of production centres in the Central Mediterranean region by presenting images and descriptions of fabrics.
We are proud to present the second release of FACEM on 6th of December 2012, centred on pottery from the Bay of Naples, in particular table wares and coarse wares from the site of Naples itself and from Cuma. These results are complemented by samples of Campana A and of Terra Sigillata, stemming both from sites of the consumption area (Velia in Campania, military camp of Haltern, Germany).
If you are interested in contributing to the FACEM project, please read "About FACEM".
