Description There are three moulded-rim jars on exhibition in the Epernay Museum from the site of La Saulsotte-Resson. Two are grey and one is orange with a burnished micaceous slip - all are wheel-made in coarse sand-tempered wares[2]. These jars seems to be products of kilns excavated in 1938/9 by A.Brisson and A.Loppin and reported briefly in Gallia 1 (1943), 213-217. The other vessels in the collection include flanged bowls and rouletted beakers in grey wheel-made wares which are probably of second century date. Le Ny (1988) refers to tile production at this site.
