From Late Roman to Suevic-Visigothic period at Almoínhas (Loures, Portugal): evolution of fine ware imports and regional imitations between c.350 and 525+ AD

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Almoínhas is located in Lisbon’s peninsula, near the ancient city of Olisipo (Lisbon) and its site typology is far from clear: it could be a vicus, the most recent hypothesis, or a villa. On the lower Tagus basin, during Antiquity, Almoínhas has taken advantage from this crucial emplacement and absorbed important quantities and varieties of fine ware typologies. After a first paper about 2nd century and early 4th century AD phases, this paper discusses the Late Antiquity stratigraphy, with extremely important data from late 5th century and first half of the 6th century AD phases, where a local or regional cooking ware production – inspired on African prototypes – apparently achieves its floruit.
