These two volumes form the final publication of a major excavation on the side of the famous Circular (or Naval) Harbour of Carthage. Volume II,1 publishes the main findings, including the remains of the dry docks for the Carthaginian navy and the probable remains of an imperial clothworks. Volume II,2 reports on the pottery from the well stratified urban sequence which spans the late Punic to the late Byzantine periods. As a whole, this collection is as comprehensive a publication of an urban excavation as has ever been attempted.
