Based on the author's thesis, this study focuses on local hand-made Late Iron Age pottery traditions of Dacia, a region which was to become a Roman province in 106 AD. Mircea Negru presents a typology of nature hand-made storage, kitchen and tablewares and argues that these types of ceramics continued to be produced even after the first Roman colonists arrived due to local demand, conservatism and the sheer popularity of these vessels among the local population.
