Site name Champlieu
location FR 60-Oise
museum Musée des Antiquités Nationales, Saint-Germain-en-Laye (Paris)
Typology Cam 262
Description Tuffreau-Libre illustrates a jar of form C262 from Champlieu in the Forêt de Compiègne, described as `pâte fine orangée à dégraissant non visible, bien cuite', with a micaceous slip on the rim and shoulder. This is clearly not TF1, but a finer wheel-thrown ware. Mme Tuffreau-Libre considers the vessel to be `local' but the alternative of an origin amongst the industries of Central Gaul could be considered.
