Dr Michel Bonifay, Director of Research at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS)in Aix-en-Provence will look at the ubiquitous presence throughout the Mediterranean of pottery and amphorae produced in Africa from the 2nd to the 7th century, and will show that they are one source among others to our understanding of Roman port interconnectivity.
