Theodore Peña brought many of these threads together by offering the first extended consideration of how ceramic vessels were made, used and stayed in use serving various secondary purposes, before finally entering the archaeological record. In describing these paths from production to discard and how the archaeological record will be affected, Peña was clearly influenced by work on site formation processes in other fields of archaeology, especially the work of Michael Schiffer and others working outside the realm of Classical Archaeology.

The book arrived very quickly, and it was in very good shape. I am looking forward to reading it soon.

This book is very well written. It manages to introduce and explicate the subject well, even for archaeologists outside the Roman world. The book is dense with information, but never unreadable, and it brings to light an often-ignored facet of archaeology. My initial reading of the book sparked new thoughts about the full life cycle of Roman pottery, and now it has become an important reference book in my home library.
