Site name Jouars-Pontchartrain
location FR 78-Yvelines
museum Service archéologique départemental des Yvelines
Description A number of wasters of moulded-rim jars of the C262 form are illustrated from this site. Most seem to have only a single groove on the inside of the rim and are in a quartz-tempered wheel-thrown ware, with a micaceous slip on the rim and shoulder. In their brief description, Jobelot and Vermeersch draw an explicit contrast between these vessels and the coarser fabric of the majority of examples of le type Besançon from the region.
